Interesting chemical biology paper - looking for your advice
« on: March 31, 2021, 07:23:44 AM »
Hi everyone!

Last semester of my M.S.c focused on electrochemistry - probably one of the least biology related subjects,

And I took a course in chemical biology where the final assignment is to give a short lecture on a recently published paper from the field. Specifically, I'm required to present a paper which deals with the development of molecular tools that enable the study of a biological function.

I'd like to ask for your help, fellow researchers, if you could suggest me interesting papers that answer the general description above, while at the same time are lighter on the biology part.

Thanks in advance!!!

Assuming that you are interested in electrochemistry, why not do something on microbes that generate electricity?

Thank you very much for your response!

Judging by the introduction, it doesn't look like it fits the bill.
I will definitely try to dig a bit dipper though to find out exactly.

Here are some suggestions of molecular tools from chem bio labs to study basic biological processes:

Maybe a few suggestions that are a little further from what people would consider chem biol, but might fit more with your electrochemistry background:
