With the advent of powerful desktop and laptop personal computers has come a wealth of computational tools that can aid in the understanding of chemical and biochemical concepts. This talk will survey several of the free structure visualization software packages that are currently used in biochemistry instruction. The emphasis will be on the most effective uses of these tools both inside and outside the lecture classroom.

. Review of new federal policies for principal investigators (PIs) and IRBs included a discussion of education requirements for the PI and federal certification of the IRB. Controversial policy decisions are reviewed in a case study format including recent university sanctions and the new issue of "third party informed consent." Members of the audience were selected and participated in a mock IRB Review of these cases. An annotated bibliography of text and web-based materials was distributed. The workshop was designed to partially satisfy PI education requirements and to provide the basis for further study. There was no charge for the workshop unless participants wished to register CEU's.

The Mississippi Center for Supercomputing Research was established in 1987 by the Mississippi Legislature and the Institutions of Higher Learning (IHL) in order to provide high performance supercomputing (HPC) support for research and instruction at all state universities. The Mississippi Supercomputer User Advisory Committee (MSUAG) was established by the IHL Research Consortium to provide user input and advice to MCSR management and technical staff on policies and procedures Policies and Procedures are a set of documents that describe an organization's policies for operation and the procedures necessary to fulfill the policies. They are often initiated because of some external requirement, such as environmental compliance or other governmental  for the Center's operations. It includes member representatives from all IHL institutions. The Advisory Group will meet at this MAS conference. Mr. David G.
