A Virtual Course
PRINCIPLES OF PROTEIN STRUCTURE
INVITATIONS for STUDENT REGISTRATION
This is an interactive multimedia Internet course covering the
basic principles of protein structure and related function. It is sponsored
Birkbeck College, University of London
The Virtual School of Natural Sciences (Globewide Network Academy).
Since the initial announcement 6 weeks ago, about 30 consultants worldwide
have volunteered to help in various ways, and have already contributed
extremely impressive material. There are many completely novel methods
of learning in this course and it has already received much interest.
WE ARE NOW INVITING APPLICATIONS FOR STUDENTS ON THE COURSE.
There are no fees or formal qualifications required but there ARE a number
of other requirements and all students MUST READ THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY
before applying. Registration will ONLY BE ACCEPTED (OR EVEN ACKNOWLEDGED)
VIA THE FORMS PROTOCOL UNDER HTML/CGI. (Most browsers such as Netscape,
Mosaic and lynx (text-only) support this).
ALL MATERIAL RELATING TO THE COURSE IS UNDER THE URL:
Please read this before mailing us with additional questions. There are
also HTML/CGI forms for adding your comments, and this is a more efficient
method than e-mail.
All correspondence should go to the addresses given under the course
URL and no longer to me. In this way we can record and manage your mail more
I am sorry that there has been a slight delay in registration, (due
to technical server problems), but we don't expect it to delay the start
of the course. We expect a heavy application, but it is NOT
first-come-first-served, so please make sure you read the material carefully.

BTW The WWW pages at Daresbury (http://seqnet.dl.ac.uk:8000/vsns-pps) will
remain as a mirror of the Birkbeck pages, but BBK is now the primary site.
I believe that all the static documents link correctly, and we also believe
that the forms and scripts work - use the bugs form for any problems.
I am extremely grateful to several people for their technical help with
the servers (Alan Bleasby, Dave Houldershaw, Alan Mills, Marcus Speh, and
Richard Westlake). If there are technical problems with the DL material,
