"BIOTECHNOLOGY AND THE RESPONSE TO STRESS IN PLANTS"
INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

The International Conference of Biotechnology will take place from
August 10th to 12th at the Magna Library Auditorium of the Autonomous
University of Nuevo Leon (www.uanl.mx) in Monterrey, Mexico. The
objective of this conference is to promote and encourage bilateral
relationships between the US universities forming the MidAmerica
International Agricultural Consortium "MIAC" (Missouri, Nebraska,
Oklahoma State, Kansas State y Iowa State), and Mexican Research and
Education Institutions and Private Industries interested in applying
biotechnological techniques to solve stress problems in plants.

The ultimate goal of this event is to identify possible collaborative
interactions and/or to identify complementary research in areas of
common interest to Mexico and United States, and also to promote the
exchange of technology and its applications generated in both countries.
We are sure that this event will help to identify linkages and possible
sources of research support, as well as help identify complementary
areas of expertise for all of those in attendance, at whatever level,
from lab heads to graduate students. So, all are cordially invited.
