Enlargement – we hope to add more topics over the next few
months so do come back and check. If you would like to contribute
to help make this site an all round starting point for myosin
interests please get in touch with any of the researchers named
on this page.

You may also find the Kinesin
Home Page
which has a wide
range of information on the Kinesin family of molecular motors
of interest.

Site conceived and initiated in 1996 by
Jamie Cope and Tony
(who are past members of the lab), and is currently
designed and maintained by the Myosin and
Muscular Dystrophy Group
. Any coments/contributions should
be sent to Rhys Roberts.


Thanks to Sharyn
for bringing together a number of the contributors to
this site, for putting together some of the html, for her encouragement
and for hosting the US
of this site.

If you use diagrams, trees, or sequence
alignments from the Myosin site, we ask that you cite either the
home page and authors, or the appropriate source publication in
your work.
