MS Webmasters, it is time to update your old Mass Spectrometry on the Internet links. Any pages with the old Emory links (http://userwww.service.emory.edu/~kmurray/mslist.html or the really old http://tswww.cc.emory.edu/~kmurray/mslist.html) should update their links to the SpectroscopyNow/Basepeak link: http://www.spectroscopynow.com/Spy/ms/. The MS on the Internet link is now officially dead.
To find out what pages are linked to the old site, see below:

Be sure to register for Pittcon 2002 before February 11 to get the advance rate. Surprisingly, there is no link back to the main Pittcon site (http://www.pittcon.org/) from the registration site.
Top Chemistry Programs in US
Here is some data on US chemistry department funding and peer rankings that I dug out of the funding agancy and US News sites. They are a bit tough to find, so I pulled the summary data out and left links back to the agency sites.
NSF MPS Chemistry Funding FY2001
NIH Chemistry Department Funding FY2000
US News Chemistry Graduate Program Rank (1999)
It’s hard to find a mass spectrometry site these days that isn’t devoted to proteomics, but the Nucleic Acids Massspec Toolbox at the University of Utah is a welcome exception. Some very nice Java scripts by Jef Rozenski that let you calculate oligo mass, composition and other useful things on-line.
There is a laser ablation A-page cover story (and nice cover graphic!) for the February 1 Analytical Chemistry. Don’t forget to bookmark the article search page while you are there.
Presentations from the ASMS Fall workshop on High Throughput and Automated Mass Spectrometry are online as PDF files.
