|Registration Date: Dec 23, 2011|
|Early Registration Date: Dec 23, 2011|
|Abstract Submission Date: Nov 30, 2011|
The seminar is also intended to be a platform for exposing young scientists to the emerging trends in ROS research and bring them face to face with leaders in the area.
â€¢ Reactive oxygen chemistry and generation of reactive oxygen species by abiotic systems
â€¢ New strategies in detection and measurement of reactive oxygen species, including in situ measurement and live imaging
â€¢ Electron transport and enzyme redox systems as generators of reactive oxygen
â€¢ Redox buffering and homeostasis
â€¢ Role of ROS in mediating stress and disease
â€¢ Reactive oxygen in lignification, fruit ripening and plant defense
â€¢ Mechanisms of protection against reactive oxygen: Enzymatic and non enzymatic antioxidant systems
â€¢ Development and metabolic engineering of plant based and synthetic antioxidants, and development of nutraceuticals to combat oxidative stress
â€¢ Oxidative changes in biomolecules: potential signaling partners
â€¢ Volatile oxidation products as signaling agents
â€¢ Role of reactive oxygen in shaping life and directing evolution. Lessons from geology and geochemistry
