The 10th Central European Conference, “Chemistry towards Biology” (CTB-2020)/Instruct-ULTRA, will be held at Hotel Tatra, Bratislava, Slovak Republic probably from 6 to 10 September, 2020.
The Chemistry towards Biology is the 10th continuation of the series of successful meetings aimed at the exchange of scientific results and ideas in the fields of chemistry and biology. Instruct-ULTRA supports advances in structural biology research, particularly linking atomic structure with molecular properties and cellular context. As these two meetings will be organized together, the theme of this year's Conference will be "Biomolecular structure” and will cover primarily topics – structure and dynamics of biomolecules, intermolecular interactions, experimental and theoretical methods in biomolecular research.
The aim of both structural biology meetings is to develop a platform for scientific contacts between researchers dealing with biomolecules and biomedical sciences from European and other countries, and to support cooperation between scientists in this field. For all details, please see https://www.instruct.sav.sk/index.html.
This meeting has the ambition to build on previous successful years rich in the international participation of scientists from up to 20 countries around the world. The organizers understand that unfortunately, due to the epidemic of COVID-19, the current border closure and overall limited travel, potential conference participants would face difficulties with active participation. However, they are cordially invited to participate, if the situation allows.
Conference participants are invited to contribute original research papers or reviews to this Special Issue of International Journal of Molecular Sciences, which was created specifically for this conference. Given the pandemic situation and the hospitality of the Editorial Office of the journal, we can announce that this issue is now open to all scientists in respective fields without the condition of attending this conference, although, as mentioned above, we expect the conference to take place. Unfortunately, those who do not attend the conference cannot use a 15% discount for their submission, as mentioned below.
Therefore, we invite scientists from all over the world, whose scientific field covers some of the keywords below, not to hesitate and participate in this Special Issue of International Journal of Molecular Sciences called "Chemistry towards Biology".

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
