Keystone Symposia: Plant Immunity: Pathways and Translation
Date: April 07, 2013
Location: Big Sky, Montana, USA

Organized by Sophien Kamoun of Sainsbury Laboratory and Ken Shirasu of RIKEN, the four-day conference will:

  • Convene with a keynote address by Paul M. Schulze-Lefert of Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research, followed by four days of stimulating plenary sessions, workshops and poster sessions;
  • Highlight the latest developments in understanding plant immune pathways, how these pathways are perturbed by pathogens, and how plants and their parasites co-evolve;
  • Address how basic knowledge on plant immunity can be translated into applications of relevance to agriculture and raise the profile of translational plant pathology research in an era of looming food crisis.
