Christmas at Thompson corridor brings jointly the simplest of the Christmas tales of Anthony Trollope, probably the most winning, prolific, and revered English novelists of the 19th century.  Characterized through insightful, psychologically wealthy, and infrequently wryly funny depictions of the center classification and gentry of Victorian England—and encouraged sometimes through missives within the “lost letter” field of the provincial submit place of work that Trollope ran—these stories helped to enshrine the traditions of the embellished Christmas tree, the vacation turkey, and the giving of store-bought presents.  Today, they open a window onto a time while carolers crammed the streets and every house’s door displayed a wreath of evergreen boughs, a time at once distant and but startlingly wide-spread.

The ability to interpret the data from the study of mutant proteins in terms of a structural model depends in part upon the ability to recognize patterns within the data. The recognition of patterns in turn depends upon the ability to categorize the data in a simple, yet informative, manner. We have previously developed a scheme for categorizing equilibrium and kinetic folding data which allows us to analyze variant proteins (Beasty et al.
