Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Meetings & Courses Program
June 26 - July 16, 2009
Application Deadline: March 15, 2009

Thomas Brutnell, Boyce Thompson Institute
Elizabeth Toby Kellogg, University of Missouri
Vivian Irish, Yale University
Jennifer Normanly, University of Massachusetts

This course provides an intensive overview of topics in plant physiology, biochemistry and development, focusing on molecular genetic and analytical approaches to understanding plant biology. It emphasizes recent results from Arabidopsis, maize and a variety of other plants and provides an introduction to current methods used in plant molecular biology. It is designed for scientists with some experience in molecular techniques or in plant biology who wish to work with plants using the latest technologies in genetics, molecular biology and biochemistry. The course consists of a vigorous lecture series, a hands-on laboratory, and informal discussions. Discussions of important topics in plant research will be presented by the instructors and by invited speakers. These seminars will include plant morphology and anatomy; plant development (such as development of flowers, leaves, male and female gametophytes, and roots); perception of light and photomorphogenesis; cell wall biosynthesis, function and perception of hormones and application of research results to addressing current agronomic problems. Lectures describing bioinformatics tools available to the plant community, and the resources provided by plant genome projects are also included. Speakers will provide overviews of their fields, followed by in-depth discussions of their own work. The laboratory sessions will provide an introduction to important techniques currently used in plant research. These include studies of plant development, mutant analysis, histochemical staining, transient gene expression, gene silencing, applications of fluorescent protein fusions, protein interaction and detection, proteomics approaches, several different approaches for quantifying metabolites, transient transformation and techniques commonly used in genetic and physical mapping. The course also includes several short workshops on important themes in plant research.
