Aims and Scope

Current Chinese Science: Chemical Biology publishes original research articles, letters, reviews/mini-reviews and guest edited thematic issues on various topics related to chemical biology. Articles may be focused largely, but not exclusively, on contributions from China.


This is not limited to a specific aspect of the field but is instead devoted to a wide range of sub fields in the area. Articles of interdisciplinary nature are particularly welcome. Submissions in the following areas are of special interest to the readers of this journal:


  • Assay development
  • Biocatalysis and biotransformation
  • Bioorganic and bioinorganic chemistry
  • Cell signaling chemistry
  • Chemical genomics
  • Chemical informatics
  • Chemical mechanisms of biological systems
  • Chemical synthesis
  • Energy (e.g. biological pathways for electrons, protons and photo-excitations)
  • Genome- and proteome-wide analysis
  • Mechanisms of biological redox regulation
  • Mechanisms of drug design
  • Mechanistic biology
  • Metabolomics
  • Metal ions in biological systems
  • Metalloenzymes
  • Molecular imaging, high resolution methods in microscopy
  • Natural product synthesis
  • Next generation therapeutics
  • Photo-induced processes and sight switches
  • Plant cell based chemistry
  • Proteomics
  • Small molecules targeting cellular redox network as therapeutic agents and tools;
  • Syntheses of biologically important macromolecules including proteins, polypeptides, oligonucleotides, oligosaccharides etc.
  • Synthesis of small biomolecules
  • Synthetic biology and biomolecules
