Inspired by genetics, chemistry finally takes hold of its own code

Nature proves every day that it is both complex and efficient, and even that its complexity contributes to its efficiency. Organic chemists—chemists who work on carbon-based molecules—are envious of it; their conventional tools confine them to simpler achievements. Thanks to the work of Professor Stefan Matile’s team from the University of Geneva (UNIGE), these limitations could become a thing of the past. His publication in the Nature Chemistry journal indeed offers a new kind of code to chemists, allowing them to access new levels of complexity.
