Abstract Deadline: January 9, 2009

We are pleased to announce the seventh Cold Spring Harbor winter conference this year focused on Plant Genomes: Genes, Networks & Applications, which will begin on Wednesday evening, March 4, 2009 and end at noon on Saturday, March 7.
We are looking forward to a broad-based meeting, and abstracts are welcomed on all scientific topics related to advances in our understanding of plant genome structure and function. The aims of this meeting are to review progress in genome analysis of the major plant groups and to determine the similarities and differences in genome structure, composition and function of the major groups of experimental and crop plants.

The format of the meeting will include six oral sessions and one poster session. Each oral session will include invited speakers and speakers selected from submitted abstracts. For this reason, abstracts from accomplished junior and senior investigators are warmly invited.

Keynote Speakers
Andrew Clark, Cornell University
Aviv Regev, Broad Institute
Topics Include:
• Celebrating the Maize Genome
• Hybrids and Heterosis
• Genomes-Plants and Microbes
• Innovative Phenotyping
• Integrating omics/iPlant models
• Evolution Inside/Outside the Lab
