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

go Ecology and Evolution lab researcher, completed research with several local and nationally-based colleagues on another application using tilting arrays. Their paper which will be presented on July 8th is called Deletion and Duplication Detection in Arabidopsis using Tilting Arrays. Williams can be reached at rwilliams@uchicago.edu.

Cell-to-cell and long-distance plant signaling are the key topics of the work done by University of Chicagos Karen Deak and Jocelyn Malamy. This presentation slated for July 8th is based on their paper Long Distance Signals Regulate Lateral Root Emergence in Arabidopsis thaliana. Deak can be reached at kdeak@uchicago.edu.

Kiera von Bessar of the University of Chicagos Department of Molecular Genetics and Cell Biology teamed with other pollen biology experts to prepare a presentation for July 9th on Arabidopsis reproduction. The Arabidopsis plant is well-represented in this group of studies because it is of particular interest and usefulness to plant scientists due to its quick growth and reproduction cycles and simple genome.

The University of Illinois also will post five research studies from various plant science labs at the Joint Congress. Two of these University of Illinois-based studies, are extensively described in separate news releases, Elevated CO2 in Atmosphere Weakens Defenses of Soybeans to Herbivores and Ilinois-based Study of Energy Crops Finds Miscanthus More Productive than Switchgrass. These news releases can be requested from Katie Engen at Katie@aspb.org.

A presentation from University of Illinois researchers is based on a paper about secondary metabolism co-authored by Sanjeewa G. Rupashinge and Mary A. Schuler. They will present their three-dimensional model of plant structures used for metabolism on July 10th. Mary Schuler can be reached at
