Plant Cytogenetics

This workshop highlights recent and exciting advances in plant cytogenetics, including basic and applied research. The workshop is a forum for new concepts and procedures that focus or rely heavily on plant cytogenetics. The theme is intended to be of broad interest of with specific examples of the unique role of modern cytogenetics in understanding plant genome structure, regulation, meiosis, ploidy, or genome dynamics.
