Mission: Promote the growth and development of plant biology, to encourage and publish research in plant biology, and to promote the interests and growth of plant scientists in general.
Programs: Publications - aspb publishes two monthly journals: plant physiology and the plant cell. Plant physiology primarily publishes full-length papers containing new results in plant physiology, biochemistry, cellular and molecular biology, biophysics, and environmental biology of plants. The plant cell publishes cutting-edge research papers in cellular molecular, and developmental biology of plants. Aspb also publishes a bi-monthly newsletter (aspb news) on general news items on the society and the industry and several other smaller books and pamphlets on various specific topics within the plant biology physiology industry. Aspb has also published a textbook on cell and molecular biology of plants.
society operations - includes expense for the membership services, overhead and it infrastructure, section support, and awards. The plant genetics meeting meetings, provide a forum for the exchange of the latest plant science data, techniques, and theories; networking with industry colleagues; and information on the newest products, services, publications, and equipment. Member services include access to special sections of the website, an annual membership directory, a job bank, and numerous free and discounted publications, a products, and events
annual meeting - the annual meeting provides a forum for the presentation of scientific data, exchange of information, and networking among plant scientists from around the world.
