We are delighted to publish our third themed issue dedicated to the work of new and emerging investigators whose research in chemical biology interfaces with the -omic sciences and systems biology.
There is plenty of exciting research in this issue, including work from Priscilla Yang on exploiting known kinase inhibitors to develop new probes for imaging kinases and Nuno Bandeira on spectral networks algorithms to analyse tandem mass spectroscopy results. Both these articles are free to access for the next four weeks.
For all the contributors to the issue please see our Profile article.
To coincide with this, Molecular BioSystems Deputy Editor Victoria Eyley has just returned from the International Conference on Systems Biology (ICSB) in Toronto, Canada where she presented this year’s Early Career Lectureship to Thijn Brummelkamp (The Netherlands Cancer Institute). Thijn is being recognised as he was one of the first to describe stable RNA interference, which is widely used to study gene function.
