Registration is now open for the Beilstein Organic Chemistry Symposium "Photoredox Catalysis for Novel Organic Reactions" from 24 to 26 April, 2018 in Potsdam, Germany.
The Beilstein Enzymology Symposium 2017 provided a perfect setting to record interviews and discussions with experts in enzymology. Watch the videos on Beilstein TV and get an insight into the experts' enlightening experiences and ideas.
A crisis is looming – read the latest article "The scientific publishing conundrum: A perspective from chemistry" written by Stephen A. Matlin, Goverdhan Mehta, Alain Krief and Henning Hopf. The authors describe an action plan for the scientific community to address the fundamental flaws in scientific publishing.
STRENDA stands for “Standards for Reporting Enzymology Data” – in four tutorials, Carsten Kettner explains the background of the project and STRENDA DB, the web-based validation tool that assists authors to automatically check manuscript enzyme function data prior or during the publication process on compliance with the STRENDA Guidelines. The data become publicly available in the database only after the manuscript has been peer-reviewed and published in a journal. The tutorials are available at Beilstein TV.
Only a few months after its release, STRENDA DB is recommended by more and more biochemistry journals for the validation of enzyme function data.
