ChemBioChem is a European Journal of Chemical Biology co-owned by the 14 European chemical society members of ChemPubSoc Europe and is published by Wiley-VCH. ChemBioChem is a peer-reviewed chemical biology journal that has been published since 2000. ChemBioChem is a sister publication to other scientific journals published by Wiley-VCH, including Angewandte Chemie, ChemMedChem, ChemPhysChem, ChemSusChem, and ChemCatChem. Its mission is to integrate the wide and flourishing fields of chemical biology and biological chemistry, and contributions in ChemBioChem cover chemical biology and biological chemistry, bioinorganic and bioorganic chemistry, biochemistry, molecular and structural biology and all research at the interface of chemistry and biology that deals with the application of chemical methods to biological problems or uses life science tools to address questions in chemistry. ChemBioChem publishes Communications and Full Papers, Reviews, Minireviews, Highlights, Concepts, Book Reviews and Conference Reports. Viewpoints, Correspondence, Essays, and Web Sites and Databases are also occasionally featured.
Engineering a protein to prevent brain damage from toxic agents
Research at New York University is paving the way for a breakthrough that may prevent brain damage in civilians and military troops exposed to poisonous chemicals—particularly those in pesticides and chemical weapons.
Chemists design molecules for controlling bacterial behavior
Chemists in the College of Arts and Sciences have figured out how to control multiple bacterial behaviors—potentially good news for the treatment of infectious diseases and other bacteria-associated issues, ...
Chemists devise a new way to manufacture peptide drugs, which hold promise for treating many diseases
Small protein fragments, also called peptides, are promising as drugs because they can be designed for very specific functions inside living cells. Insulin and the HIV drug Fuzeon are some of the earliest ...
