ACS: Here I go again

Well, the fall ACS meeting is nearly here – a few NPG editors will be attending the meeting (including myself), so don’t forget to check back for daily updates

I also wanted to mention that we’ve put together another special issue of Nature that will be distributed at the meeting – in this week’s issue, there’s a News Feature on metal-organic frameworks and several papers:

Structure-based activity prediction for an enzyme of unknown function by Hermann et al. (click here for the News & Views)

Vitrification of a monatomic metallic liquid by Bhat et al. (click here for the News & Views)

A transglutaminase homologue as a condensation catalyst in antibiotic assembly lines by Fortin et al. (click here for the News & Views)

Selection and evolution of enzymes from a partially randomized non-catalytic scaffold by Seelig & Szostak (click here for the News & Views)

If you’re going to be at the meeting, don’t forget to swing by the NPG booth (booth #434) to pick up free issues of Nature, Nature Chemical Biology, Nature Materials, Nature Methods, Nature Nanotechnology, and Nature Reviews Drug Discovery.

And last (but certainly not least), Paul thinks we should meet for “[d]rinks or dinner at a neutral location” – depending on where and when it is, I’ll try to swing by (and bring along a few of the other editors…) Hope to see you there!
