Further information on the Botanicals Meeting

The latest in a long running series of RMS sponsored meetings dating back to the 1960s and the heyday of electron microscopy. Recently the meetings have been re-branded to encompass all aspects of bioimaging relating to modern plant cell biology. As at previous meetings, the programme will be constructed from key note talks by top class plant scientists and selected talks from submitted abstracts. This is an excellent opportunity to present your research and find out latest developments in the field.
