Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Since its name being coined more than a decade ago, chemical genetics has been increasingly recognized as an effective technique in dissecting complicated biological processes difficult to be studied by conventional classical genetics approaches. The applications of chemical genetics are phenomenon and many disciplines such as cellular biology, cancer research, developmental biology, plant science, microbiology, drug discovery, etc., have been benefited greatly from this powerful methodology. New chemical compounds, probes, and novel screening procedures and informatics have been invented and applied to drive the rapid evolution of this powerful technique. This special issue on Chemical Genetics offers possibilities for colleagues to illustrate latest applications of chemical genetics in various disciplines and new technologies employed to enhance the capabilities of this evolving methodology.
