Next Wednesday, Oct 8th, Dr. Lee will be presenting at the Science Night at 7pm in GRNQ 103. The Science Night presentations are intentionally informal with the goal of describing interesting science concepts to general campus community and public. Please support Dr. Lee with your attendance. This is also an excellent opportunity to bring friends or family for an informal, accessible look at the biological sciences. Refreshments will be served. The flyer is available here in Word format.

If you missed out on the Valentine's Bake Sale, don't despair, as the goodies now reside in the
biology coffee closet, GRNQ 344, behind the adminstrative assitant office for the Math, Physics, and Chemistry concentrations.
Stop by soon, as our pickup line touting cookie packages are leaving fast.
Have a good weekend!

An area of intense research in Molecular Biology is the study of
protein folding, misfolding, and the role each play in disease. A major roadblock
in this research is the vast amount of computing power needed to suss out the structure
of a protein in question, as well as modeling its various interactions. Any individual can,
however, help with the installation of software which directs unused processing power
towards the effort.
