Plastid Preview is an annual two-day meeting for UK researchers that has been running for over 30 years. The meeting encompasses all aspects of plastid biology from plants, algae, plastid-bearing protists and plastid 'models' (i.e. cyanobacteria). Talks are given by PhD students and early-stage post-docs, and provide an opportunity for young researchers to present their work in an informal and friendly atmosphere, and to meet with others working on related topics.

Plastid Preview is hosted by a different institution each year, and the 2013 meeting is to be held on 9th & 10th September at the University of Greenwich.

As in previous years, we hope to raise sufficient sponsorship to cover the costs of the meeting, and to have an excellent meal on the Monday evening.
