Focus on phase separation

Phase separation (PS) refers to the de-mixing process of a homogenous phase to form dense and dilute phases, which is explored in this collection of recent articles from Nature Chemical Biology that aim to reveal the molecular and chemical principles underlying phase-separated condensate formation, promote the development of new tools for the study of PS biology, and broaden the application of these tools in chemical biology and biomedicine.
