ASPB convenes leaders to chart future of plant science research
Date:9/20/2011

tmicrobe interactions, and bioenergy. A number of plant-related organizations, growers' associations, and companies with an interest in plant science have also signed on as supporters of the effort; a complete list of supporters is available on the summit website.

The invitation list for the summit was developed to include as many perspectives as possible, including researchers who span all of plant sciencefrom biochemistry to ecology, from the model plant Arabidopsis to the commodity crop wheat. Although the number of those participating in person is necessarily limited, the steering committee encourages the entire community to join in the discussions remotely through the project website (http://www.aspb.org/plantsummit) and by submitting comments via e-mail to PlantSummit@aspb.org. To stimulate discussion and offer ideas to be discussed before, during, and after the summit, members of the steering committee and others have prepared a set of ten background "green papers," which can be downloaded from the summit website.

The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) will host the summit at its Chevy Chase, Maryland, headquarters, underscoring HHMI's commitment to plant science. The institute, in partnership with the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation (GBMF), recently named 15 new HHMI-GBMF Investigators, each of whom focuses their research on plant science.
