MASAMB-XIV: 14th Annual Meeting Atomistic Biological Physics Discussion Group

Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences

Statistical Mechanics of Molecular and Cellular Biological Systems

19 Jan - 9 Jul 2004

Organisers: Dr T Duke (Cambridge), Professor J Molloy (York), Professor T McLeish (Leeds), Professor W Poon (Edinburgh), Professor P Stockley (Leeds), Professor J Trinick (Leeds)

Journal of the Royal Society, Interface - Theme Issue

A year or so on from the programme we thought it would be interesting to collect together some of the consequent results in published form. The Royal Society's new journal INTERFACE was an appealing channel - like the programme itself it provides a forum where life scientists and physical scientists are equally welcome as authors and readers, especially in collaborative teams! The collection of seven papers, plus an introductory article, cover most of the sub-themes of the programme itself.

Of course this sequence by no means exhausts the results of the programme itself. Please notify me, or the Newton Institute Librarian, of any other published material that arises from discussions or work carried out during the "Statistical Mechanics of Molecular and Cellular Biological Systems" programme!
