Plant Proteomics workshop, 4 October 1999, York, UK

You might be interested to know more about a Plant Proteomics workshop organised by the Plant Protein Club.

The Plant Protein Club is a pre-competitive science and technology club with membership drawn from industry, academia and 
government which aims to stimulate efficient progress in the fundamental understanding, use and manipulation of native and 
recombinant proteins to meet the needs of industry. PPC's principal objective is to promote the exchange of ideas and expertise 
between communities specialising in protein structure, plant biology and their  industrial applications. It works toward this 
objective via a series of technology-driven short courses, workshops and annual symposia.

The club is keen to promote the use of emerging technologies, and is currently organising a one-day awareness workshop on 
Plant Proteomics, to be held in York, 4 October 1999. It is envisaged that the workshop will be relatively small (up to 75 
participants) and relatively informal in order to encourage maximum interaction among participants. A programme is currently 
being compiled but a provisional timetable is given below.
