Biological Chemistry
(York Structural Biology Laboratory)

York’s biological chemistry research, including structural and chemical biology, has its epicentre in the York Structural Biology Laboratory (YSBL). Work focuses on the fundamental chemical bases for biological and biochemical processes, the use of small molecules to probe cellular biology, software and methods development and on the exploitation of enzymes in biocatalysis.
