CHRONICLE The Sixteenth International Symposium on Plant Lipids (Budapest, Hungary, June 1–4, 2004) More than 200 scientists from 28 countries took part The mechanism of biosynthesis of very-long-chain in the regularly scheduled 16th Symposium on Plant FA was investigated in A. thaliana plants. These FAs Lipids convened by the Hungarian Scientiﬁc Society are the main precursors for alcohols, ketones, alkanes, for Food Industry and the Faculty of Food Science, and esters that constitute the protective epicuticular Budapest University of Economic Sciences.
