The 36th annual MAIZE GENETICS MEETING will be held MARCH 24-27, 1994 at the
Pheasant Run Conference Center near Chicago, Illinois.
The purpose of the meeting is to discuss recent research advances in maize
genetics. Topics covered range from cytogentics to molecular genetics and
include chromosome mechanics, cytoplasmic inheritance, mapping,
transposable element behavior, gene identification and expression,
development, tissue culture and transformation.
The meeting is considered to be an essential gathering for scientists
working with maize, but is open to other plant scientists who wish to learn
from the strong heritage of maize genetics. More general talks in the
evening serve to introduce and update different areas of research. During
the mornings, short contributed talks are given, while the afternoons are
devoted to poster sessions and workshops. Recent, unpublished data and
presentations by graduate students and postdoctoral researchers are
emphasized. During the afternoons and late evenings, there is time for
personal scientific interactions and for discussions among cooperators.
The following speakers have agreed to give evening and workshop talks at
the 1994 meeting:
Steve Dellaporta (Yale Univ.) Flowering in maize: Analysis of
Keith Edwards (Zeneca Seeds, UK) Uses of Maize-Yeast Artificial
Elizabeth Kellogg (Harvard Univ.) Maize as a model system for
studying the evolution
Sam Levings (N. C. State Univ.) Cms-T and fungal toxin susceptibility
Ron Phillips (Univ. of Minnesota) Genomic reprogramming enhanced by
Virgina Walbot (Stanford Univ.) History and Uses of Robertson's Mutator
Information packets will be sent to previous participants.
