Subcommittee on Biomolecular Chemistry


The Subcommittee will seek to deliver the long-range goals of IUPAC, particularly within the vital interfacial area of molecular science that lies between organic chemistry and biology. It will support the application of the powerful methods of chemistry to current and emerging problems in biology to achieve understanding and, where appropriate, modification of the systems of living organisms at the molecular level.

To that end, the Subcommittee will provide a focus for the dissemination of current knowledge and the development of future directions in the following fields:

  • Structure, function and applications of biomolecules and their analogues.
  • Molecular mechanisms of biological processes and their modulation.
  • Molecular engineering via chemo-enzymatic processes.
  • Analysis, manipulation and application of biomolecular information systems
