<font face=3D"Times New Roman, Times">Gordon Conference on
&quot;Gravitational Effects on Living Systems: Mechanosensing&quot;<br>
<b>July 1-6 2001</b> <br>
Place: Connecticut College, near New London, CT.<br>
This conference will be the 7th in the =ECGravitational Effects on Living
Systems=EE series, which has by tradition been a mixture of plant and
animal science. For the 2001 meeting, we will expand on the
mechanosensing focus of the 1996 and 1998 meetings and take a
comprehensive look at mechanosensing in microorganisms, plants and
animals, in single cells and tissues, and in specialized mechanosensors.
The time seems right for such a conference, in light of the many new
developments across the field.<br>
General topics include:<br>
</font>I. Principles of mechano- and gravity sensing: plants and
II. Mechanosensing in microorganisms/ organisms with cell walls <br>
III. Signal transduction cascades evoked by mechanical stress and
IV. Mechanosensitive and other ion channels in mechano- and
<font face=3D"Times New Roman, Times">V. Genetic approaches to
mechanosensing and gravitropism<br>
