                     BIOPOLYMER STRUCTURES:  
         WHERE DO THEY COME FROM?  WHERE ARE THEY GOING?
    EVOLUTIONARY PERSPECTIVES ON BIOPOLYMER STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION
 
                     A Seminar Track in the
             Second Pacific Symposium on Biocomputing
       January 6-9, 1997 Ritz-Carlton Kapalua,  Maui, Hawaii

  Biological macromolecules are the result of eons of evolution.  In
order to understand these macromolecules, it is necessary to
understand the evolutionary pressures that determined their current
form.  Conversely, the properties of these macromolecules encode this
heritage, and can provide insight into the process of evolution.  The
effort to understand, reconstruct and simulate the evolution of
biopolymers, including their structure and function, has become a key
task involving such diverse fields as evolutionary biology, molecular
biology, structural biology, biophysical chemistry, and
bio-informatics.
  This track, part of the Second Pacific Symposium on Biocomputing,
invites scientists from related disciplines to present original papers
that discuss new techniques, theories, insights and approaches for
understanding the evolution of biopolymers.  We welcome papers
describing results from a wide range of possible methodologies,
including analyses of the databases of biomolecular sequences and
structures, simple conceptual and computational evolutionary models,
and computational perspectives on experimental results.
