Biochemistry 2020 - Meeting of the Biochemistry Division

Chemical Biology of Nucleic Acids & Proteins

March 11-13, 2020, Münster

Chemical Biology of Nucleic Acids & Proteins

We regret that we have to inform you that the Biochemistry 2020 will be canceled.

The board of the GDCh-Biochemistry-Division made this decision unanimously after a long and careful consideration based on the current development of the corona virus in North Rhine-Westphalia. In this context, the University of Münster has canceled all international meetings and symposia until the end of march. We apologize for the inconveniences this will undoubtedly cause as we were looking forward to an exciting meeting, but ultimately we have to put safety and the measures against fast spreading of the virus first.

We will refund the registration fees that have already been paid. Details on how you will receive that refund will follow within the next days. According to our terms and conditions, we are not able to cover travel and hotel costs. If you have already booked your arrival and hotel room, we would like to remind you to cancel it in order to keep the follow-up costs for you and your company as low as possible.

We would like to point out that Deutsche Bahn will reimburse long-distance tickets. Please contact the points of sale and the customer dialogue at DB or visit

Thank you for your understanding. We hope that we can welcome you at the next conference of the GDCh-Biochemistry-Division.

The Biochemistry Division of the German Chemical Society cordially invites you to participate in

Chemical Biology of Nucleic Acids & Proteins
Meeting of the Biochemistry Division

March 11 – 13, 2020 · Münster (Westfalen)


Modifications of biomacromolecules represent a rapidly growing field in chemical biology. Being able to precisely manipulate the structure and control the function of biomacromolecules will enhance our understanding of biological processes and provide new avenues for therapeutic applications. This conference aims to bring together scientists from chemistry and biology workingon chemical biology approaches to make, modify and control biomacromolecules in vitro, in cells and in vivo. The conference will cover new approaches for the (semi)-synthesis, modification and analysis of proteins, nucleic acids and glycans including bioorthogonal chemistry and synthetic biology.
New tools for analysis or (light)-control of biological systems and “omics” approaches are explicitly welcome. There will be ~6 plenary lectures by leading international scientists, plus ~20 oral presentations selected from the submitted abstracts.
