Abstracts for the 2010 Chlamydomonas Meeting

 

Final list of abstracts, June 2, 2010. The abstract by D'Souza and colleagues has been revised, and new abstracts by Boyle, Kropat, and Page have been added.

Abstracts published here should not be cited in bibliographies. These materials should be treated as Personal Communications and only cited as such with the consent of the authors.

The abstracts are listed alphabetically by the name of the presenting author.
Please let us know if you submitted an abstract that does not appear here.

We have added only essential special characters as html codes in the bodies of the abstracts, and have not italicized genus, species or mutant names there, or added non-essential sub- and superscripts. The printed booklet will show the abstracts formatted as submitted in the Word documents. If you feel that your abstract needs additional formatting for the web in order to be clear, please contact us.
