Illinois researchers presenting at ASPB Annual Meeting in Chicago, July 7-11

Leading scientists at research institutions in Chicago and across Illinois will be presenting research findings at the American Society of Plant Biologists (ASPB) annual Plant Biology meeting in Chicago (July 7-11). ASPBs meeting will be held as a Joint Congress in conjunction with the annual meetings of the American Fern Society (AFS), the American Society of Plant Taxonomists (ASPT), and the Botanical Society of America (BSA).

This Joint Congress will include several hundred exhibits, scientific sessions and events. Attendees from all of these societies will participate in each others events. Such cross-pollination of ideas and debate will inform and catalyze development across over 40 different plant science research areas. Presenters include scientists from the University of Chicago, the University of Illinois and Southern Illinois University. Their findings will include information on improved plant genome measurement technologies, plant cell-to-cell signaling, and plant reproduction, physiology and metabolism.

Five important studies that will be presented at the meetings were conducted by University of Chicago researchers in conjunction with research partners from other national and international labs. Three of these Chicago-based studies focus on new and innovative plant genome technologies. The first study was managed by Justin Borevitz of University of Chicagos Ecology and Evolution Department. Borevitz and several colleagues created a presentation based on their paper entitled Detecting Circadian Clock Regulated Transcription using Genome Tilting Arrays. Their work will be presented by Sam Hazen on July 8th. Borevitz also will join Xu Zhang and Jake Byrnes, two more of his co-researchers who are also from Chicago, to present on July 8th their findings from their Survey of splicing variation and allele specific expression in natural accessions of Arabidopsis thaliana using SNP-tilting array.
