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 Hodge (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 Endow 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 Mirror 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.
