The International Symposium on Induced Mutations in Plants (ISIM) will be held on 12-15 August, 2008 in Vienna, Austria. The event aims to provide a venue to disseminate information on current trends in induced mutagenesis in plants. Among the topics to be discussed include: molecular genetics and biology of induced mutagenesis, new mutation techniques, induced mutations in crop breeding programmes, mutational analysis tolerance to abiotic and biotic stresses, and socio-economic impact of widespread mutant varieties. Interested parties may send completed participation forms to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
