The International Conference on Arabidopsis Research (ICAR) has just
finished in Paris and included a gathering of the Multinational
Arabidopsis Steering Committee (MASC).
The role of MASC is to advise on the direction of worldwide Arabidopsis
research by supporting the ICAR meetings and encouraging collaboration
between researchers in different nations. Each year MASC publishes a
report that provides an overview of Arabidopsis research in each member
country. Importantly this can also include examples of Arabidopsis
research that has been translated into other species.
Therefore it is hoped the report will be of broad interest to plant
science researchers around the world. The report is attached and also
MASC has a new website with plenty of information as well!
