Biopolymers in vivo

The Society Executive Board approved the Biopolymer Biophysics in vivo Subgroup at its spring 2010 meeting. The subgroup will hold its first business meeting at the 2011 BPS Annual Meeting in Baltimore, Maryland, at which time attendees will vote on acceptance of the subgroup's name and bylaws and elect its governing body.
