Elizabeth Rhoades, Yale Univ. and Scott Showalter, The Pennsylvania State Univ.
This theme is made up of four symposia, one scheduled each
day of the meeting, Sun – Wed. Please
read below for invited speaker and session schedule information. In addition to the invited talks listed
below, short talks will be selected from the submitted abstracts. To be considered for a volunteered talk in
this theme, submit your abstract to an ASBMB topic category number: 2090-2108,
by the November 8th submission deadline. All volunteered abstracts will be programmed
for poster presentation. Those selected
for oral presentation will also present a poster. Programming notifications will be sent in
mid-January. We look forward to seeing
you at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, BCEC, March 28 – April 1,
