ABRF's Protein Sequencing Group Recruiting New Members


This story originally ran on May 13.

The Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities' protein sequencing group is looking for new members.

The Protein Sequencing Research Group, which focuses on emerging and traditional methods of determining the primary structure of protein termini, has put out the word for researchers interested in joining the group, in particular those with experience in Edman sequencing.

Particpants must be members of ABRF and will be asked to submit a letter of interest and a brief biography. They will also be asked to fill out a conflict-of-interest form. The group is asking for a three-year commitment.

Interested candidates should contact Jim Walters of Sigma-Aldrich, the current chair of PSRG, or other members of the group. A list of contacts and more information about PSRG is available here.
