About the Workshop
Cell-to-cell communication via the movement of proteins, nucleic acids and small molecules underpins many aspects of plant development and environmental responses. In plants there is increasing evidence that plasmodesmata tightly regulate symplastic intercellular communication and are becoming a common focus for plant biologists from different fields. New findings identify both mechanisms of plasmodesmal regulation and the mobile signals that signal between cells.
This EMBO Workshop aims to bring together researchers who study symplastic cell-to-cell communication in various contexts to identify common mechanisms of intercellular communication, with the ultimate goal of advancing research to better examine multicellular responses and intercellular co-ordination.
