Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of National Key Laboratory of Plant Molecular Genetics (NKLPMG) and Shanghai Institute of Plant Physiology and Ecology (SIPPE), Chinese Academy of Sciences, we cordially invite you to attend the first “Tsung-lo Lo” Symposium, which will be held in Shanghai, China from November 15 to 16, 2018.

Prof. Tsung-lo Lo (1898-1978), graduated from Hokkaido University, is a famous plant physiologist and one of the founders of modern plant physiology in China. The “Tsung-lo Lo” Symposium will cover several major themes including crop functional genomics, plant hormone and signal conduction, plant developmental biology, plant metabolism and plant-environment interaction.

Well-known experts and scholars at home and abroad will come to share and exchange their research achievements and work experience. The symposium will represent unique forum for both scientific cooperation and academic exchanges. Our aim is to provide opportunities for all participants to learn the cutting-edge discoveries and innovative techniques in plant science and to exchange new ideas for future research and development, and to strengthen the close link between China and the world.

Thank you very much for your interests. We look forward to welcoming you during the symposium in Shanghai, China.

With sincere regards,

Jiming Gong and Bin Han
