Subject: Workshop on mycorrhizae research at Asilomer meeting

Dear Symbiosis netters,

I want to take this opportunity to inform you that there will be a workshop
on recent advances in mycorrhizal resesarch at the 19th Fungal Genetics
Conference, March 18-23 1997 in Asilomer, California.  I would like to
invite interested people for participation in this workshop.  The following
areas have been chosen (tentative) for representation:

1.  Signaling in mycorrhizae formation
2.  Molecular genetics of symbiosis process
3.  Mycorrhizal membrane interface and solute transport
4.  Application of modern molecular techniques to mycorrhizal research for
        a. classification
        b. identification - fingerprinting
        c. genome mapping
        d. ecology and biodiversity
 5.  Biotechnological applications of mycorrhizal fungi

Please let me know via email, phone or fax if you are interested in
participation and the topic area, you would like to represent.

The workshop will be conducted to include both presentations ( seminar
style) as well as round table discussions.  It is also planned to include
participation by  selected  poster abstracts in the mycorrhizae area.
