Bioenergy Trees – A New Phytologist Symposium

February 23rd, 2011


You’ll be pleased to hear that we are getting lots of interest in the 26th New Phytologist symposium but, nevertheless, we do ask you to keep spreading the word to make sure we get the best possible attendance. The 26th NPS will provide a platform for brainstorming and discussions of the most recent systems biology applications aiming to deliver tailored sustainable tree lignocellulosic biomass for bioethanol.

The deadline for submitting poster abstracts for this meeting is Friday 11th March 2011. We would be grateful if you could forward this information to members of your research group who may be planning on attending the symposium. For more information about poster abstracts, please visit the symposium site.

Also, if you know of people who would like to attend the meeting, please encourage them to register using the following link:

The meeting is filling up quickly and the early bird registration fees will no longer be available from 14th March 2011.
