Symposium/Workshop - Frontiers in Pollen Tube Biology
The 2012 Pollen Biology International Symposium (Oct 27-28, 2012) and Workshop/Lecture for students (Oct 29-Oct 31, 2012) was held at the Shanghai Institute of Plant Physiology and Ecology in Shanghai, China. The theme of this conference was “Frontiers in Pollen Tube Biology”. Topics for discussion included signal transduction, cell wall synthesis and modification, membrane and cytoskeleton dynamics and regulation during pollen germination and tube growth, pollen self-recognition mechanisms, and pollen tube guidance mechanisms, among others.
This symposium was organized by the National Key Laboratory of Plant Molecular Genetics (NKLPMG), Shanghai Institute of Plant Physiology and Ecology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and co-organized by the Chinese Society of Plant Physiology and the Shanghai Society of Genetics. This symposium was informally affiliated with the United States NSF-supported Research Coordination Network on Pollen Biology (http://pollennetwork.org). The official meeting language was English.
