Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Bioorganic Chemistry is an emerging field in the interface between the traditional fields of Chemistry and Biochemistry. This discipline, for citing some examples (but not limited to), comprise the use of enzymes in synthesis or as a target of synthetic organic compounds; the synthesis of proteins, peptides, glycans, sugars, nucleic acids, lipids, biopolymers, biomimetics and derivatives of them; as well as the applications of these compounds and any other organic compound in key biological mechanisms and pathways, such as biological signaling, molecular recognition and biocatalysis; among others.

In this Special Issue we want to provide an overview of the current works in the field, and which are its perspectives in the closest future, according to the most recent cutting-edge works. Any submission (research articles, communications, comprehensive reviews to provide an insight in the current state of the art) are highly welcomed.

A special discount will be granted if a Young Investigator is corresponding article of the submitted manuscript. To qualify for this discount, the Young Investigator that request it should be a researcher less than 45 years of age or within 15 years after obtaining her / his PhD.
