Update and Call for Abstract: BioComputational Chemistry Symposium at the CSC2007 
(90th Canadian Chemistry Conference and Exhibition)

Dear Colleagues,
I am organizing a Symposium on Biocomputational Chemistry as a part of the 
90th Canadian Chemistry Conference and Exhibition (CSC2007), May 26-30, 
2007, to take place in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.  
The Symposium will cover topics from method development to computational studies 
of biochemical and medicinal systems, with an emphasis on the interplay between 
theory and experiment.
To register and/or submit an abstract visit the CSC2007 site:
