        The 16th Annual Missouri Symposium will be held from April 16th to
April 19th 1997 at the University of Missouri-Columbia, run under the
auspices of the University's Interdisciplinary Plant Group. This year the
meeting is called:

        Signs and Roadways: Protein Traffic and the Cytoskeleton

A provisional program is included below. Please note that additional
speakers for short talks will be selected from submitted abstracts.
Deadline for consideration for an additional speaker slot is Feb 3, 1997.
