QMB Satellite: Plant-microbe interactions

Event Date: 
Sunday, 3 September 2017 - 9:00am to Monday, 4 September 2017 - 5:00pm

The main objective of this meeting is to bring together scientists with an interest in the genetics and molecular basis of plant-microbe interactions from New Zealand and Australia. To find out more or submit an abstract http://www.queenstownresearchweek.org/plant-microbe-interactions

The meeting will bring together around 120 researchers in the magnificent venue of Queenstown to present and engage in exciting top-level science on this topic. We have a good mixture of international and local speakers at various stages of their careers. Besides those listed below some slots will be reserved to select additional speakers from the pro-offered abstracts. In addition a selection of 5 min snapshot talks from students will be invited from the poster session to be held on the evening of 3rd September.
