Wiley Encyclopedia of Chemical Biology, 4 Volume Set (0471754773) cover image
The Wiley Encyclopedia of Chemical Biology is an authoritative new work whose goal is to illuminate the crucial role of chemistry and chemical techniques in the life sciences. The encyclopedia will adopt an inclusive editorial approach, encompassing fundamental and blue-sky science as well as those areas of research that have more immediate medical or commercial applications. The scope and structure of the work will reflect the multidimensional character of chemical biology, focusing in particular on the fundamental science of biological structures and systems, the use of chemical and biological techniques to elucidate that science, and the applications of this knowledge in areas as diverse as drug discovery, sensor technology, and catalysis.

Major topics areas covered in the encyclopedia:

  • Chemical Views of Biology
  • Biomolecules within the Cell
  • Chemistry of Biological Processes and Systems
  • Chemical Biology of Cellular Compartments
  • Synthetic Molecules as Tools for Chemical Biology
  • Technologies and Techniques in Chemical Biology
  • Applications of Chemical Biology

"This book is an excellent compilation of various topics in chemical biology. The chapters are written by experts in the field and are self-explanatory. The book is essential reading for researchers in chemical biology."  (Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, Jan - June 2010)

“If we needed one, perhaps this is the bible of chemical biology. It should find its place in any chemistry or biology library because it provides a very strong entry into a number of important and contemporary research topics and methods that are relevant to both fields, and constitute the essence of chemical biology.” (ChemBioChem, October 2009)
