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: 2270-2287,
by the November 6th 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
