Meetings in CO

JC-snowmassJC just returned from two back-to-back meetings in Snowmass, CO.  He presented work on small-helix partitioning in membranes at the first meeting on Free Energy Methods and structures of BamA and a new complex between SecY and a nascent chain at the second meeting on Membrane Proteins.  Not all the time was spent in front of a screen though, as the picture to the right clearly shows!
