Structural and chemical biology

This collection highlights a selection of recent studies published in Communications Chemistry relating to the structure, function, and chemical modification of biomolecules. The Biocatalysis section features articles which probe mechanisms of enzyme activity, or engineer enzymes for new synthetic applications. The Computational Structural Biology section encompasses new insights into the structure and function of enzymes from modern computational chemistry. And under Bioconjugation we showcase tools for the study of biological function, including bioorthogonal labeling methods and environmentally responsive fluorescent probes.

These articles have been collated by Prof. Akane Kawamura, formerly Editorial Board Member for Communications Chemistry, and Dr Andrew Bissette, Senior Editor.
