13th International Symposium on Carotenoids, 6-11 January 2002,
Honolulu, Hawaii, USA
> Back to Calendar
This symposium aims to maintain the tradition of an up-to-date survey
of progress in all aspects of the carotenoid field. It will provide
a forum to report and discuss those areas that are of particular topical
interest and where the most significant advances have been made. Presentations
are planned by those carotenoid scientists who have made the greatest
contributions to these advances.
Plenary lectures will address photosynthesis; new colorants: from concept
to commercialization; carotenoids and photodetection; the Golden Rice
Project; carotenoids, vitamin A, and nutrition; carotenoids and muscular
degeneration; genetic engineering of plants for carotenoid content;
genetic manipulation of plants; and carotenoid modulation of drug-metabolizing
Approximately 250-300 scientific participants from around the world
are expected to attend the symposium.
