Dear friends and colleagues,

The Agricultural Biotechnology Research Center at Academia Sinica welcomes you to join 2013 International Symposium on Agricultural Biotechnology. This is a symposium series newly initiated and sponsored by our center to provide a platform for scientific networking on the campus of Academia Sinica. The subject of this year is “Emerging Topics on Plant Stress Biology”, covering, but not limited to, four major themes: water and oxidative stress, temperature stress, RNA-mediated stress regulation, and nutrient and metal stress. We hope to promote interaction and communication between participants by sharing updated information and new ideas in the field of plant stress biology.

Academia Sinica is located in Taipei, the capital and the largest city of Taiwan. It is a good opportunity for you to visit the island filled with excitements and friendly people. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Sincerely yours,

Ming-Che Shih
Distinguished Research Fellow and Director
