The present volume contains the invited lectures and abstracts of the posters presented at the NATO Advanced Study Institute on Plant Molecular Biology held at the Carlsberg Laboratory in Copenhagen, June 10 to 19. The Directors of the Advanced Study Institute would like to express their most sincere gratitude for financial support to the following: NATO Danish Natural Science Research Council Danish Agricultural and Veterinary Science Research Council Carlsbergs Mindelegat for Brygger J. C. Jacobsen Carlsberg and Tuborg Breweries International Society for Plant Molecular Biology Bayer AG, Leverkusen Hoechst AG, Frankfurt-Main Biotechnology, Ciba-Geigy, Research Triangle Park, North Carolina Cal gene , Davis, California Danisco Biotechnology, Copenhagen E.

Also discussed were the possibilities to apply this knowledge to crop improvement.
