The 9th Gordon Research Conference on Membrane Transport Proteins will be held in West Dover, VT from July 13-18, 2014. The focus of the conference is membrane transport proteins with particular emphasis on their Structure, Function, Physiology, and Targets in Disease. Membrane transport proteins from both plants and pathogens are being studied for their involvement in plant-pathogen interactions and disease resistance. These membrane proteins are increasingly becoming important targets for plant breeding programs.
I will attend this meeting and present a poster about our work on a membrane transport protein involved in leaf rust resistance in wheat. There will be participents from both academic institutions and industry and there is a session on 'Transporters in plants and pathogens' highlighting the importance of this emerging field.
