Topics such as biology and genetics used to be far removed, and considered to be of limited relevance to chemistry, medicinal chemistry, and the like. Now, entire interdisciplinary areas have appeared that blend these disciplines. The active field of chemical genetics, which didn't exist 10 years ago, was almost single-handedly developed by a super chemistry at Harvard, Stuart Schreider. Medicinal chemists now routinely synthesize a new compound, purify and assy it, then test its carcinogenicity or cancer-arresting properties using techniques from molecular biology.
