Cell Chemical Biology (previously, Chemistry & Biology) publishes reports of novel investigations in all areas at the interface of chemistry and biology. Chemistry & Biology strongly encourages submission of articles in which chemical tools are used to provide unique insight into biological function and mechanism. Studies that illustrate the underlying chemistry of biological processes will also be viewed favorably. Other relevant studies of interest to chemists and biologists will also be considered. In general, to be considered suitable for publication in this journal, investigations that primarily have a genetic, computational, or theoretical focus must contain substantiating experimental data. All articles should not only be of significance to the immediate field but should also be of interest to our diverse readership from the broad chemical-biology community.

Researchers report biosynthetic pathway of mechercharmycin A

Recently, TANG Gongli's group from the Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry and University of Chinese Academy of Sciences reported the biosynthetic pathway of mechercharmycin A (MCM-A), a marine natural product belonging ...

Biological engineers find a new target for malaria drugs

Every year, more than 200 million people are infected with malaria, and nearly 500,000 die from the disease. Existing drugs can treat the infection, but the parasite that causes the disease has evolved resistance to many ...

Characterized drugs show unexpected effects

When Alexander Flemming discovered a mold on a culture plate overgrown with bacteria in 1928, he did not expect to find one of the most widely used active substances: penicillin. Accidental discoveries and the identification ...
