Nature utilizes precisely tuned metal-containing active sites to perform a multitude of challenging chemical transformations. Metals and other inorganic elements are central to the chemistry of life. Accordingly, bioinorganic chemistry is a complex interplay of many subdisciplines that seek to understand metal transport/homeostasis, cofactor biosynthesis, small molecule activation, and generation of reactive intermediates. The key tools are spectroscopy, imaging, enzymatics, protein engineering, synthetic modeling, computationally-guided approaches.
