Enlargement - we hope to add more topics in the future 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.

See also the Kinesin Home Page and the Dynein Home Page for more information on other families of molecular motors, and interested groups.


Site conceived and initiated in 1996 by Jamie Cope and Tony Hodge (who are past members of the lab) and maintained until 2002 by Rhys Roberts. It is currently maintained by Brooke Morriswood.

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.
