RE: Vanderbilt Biomolecular Modeling Symposium

Dr. Smith-

My name is Doug Kojetin, and I am a graduate student in the Department
of Molecular and Structural Biochemistry at North Carolina State
University in the laboratory of Dr. John Cavanagh. I received your
announcement for the Vanderbilt Biomolecular Modeling Symposium via the
AMBER mailing list and have a question about the poster session. Most
of the entries appear to be theoretical in nature, whereas the subject
of my potential poster is more biochemical/structural. We used homology
modeling to compare two sets of highly related proteins (30 in total).

I wanted to inquire as to whether this would be a proper topic for the
symposium. The title of my poster would be "Aspects of molecular
recognition in two-component signal transduction: The role of a-helix 1
in response regulators".

Thank you for your assistance and I look forward to attending the

Doug Kojetin

I'd like to invite AMBER list members to the Vanderbilt Biomolecular
Modeling Symposium hosted by the Center for Structural Biology. The
symposium will be held at Vanderbilt University on September 20-21,

There will be a poster session/competition on Friday night, with the
symposium to follow on Saturday. Please see below for a quick listing
the talks.

The symposium is free, but registration is required. Details can be
