This is the OLD home page for the ALWAYS CHANGING course - Structure of Biological Macromolecules - taught by Dave and Jane Richardson.

The table below will become a source of class materials - handouts, worksheets, and kinemage files. Two "flavors" of hyperlinks can be found in these two columns. The Subject column will contain links to other pages for display (or printing). The downloads column will contain links to files - typically kinemages - which you should download for use on your computer.

Depending on your browser's setup, certain files may be displayed rather than downloaded. In this case, you'll need to force the download by either "right-clicking" or control-clicking the link.
