Abstract:

We began the Symposium with an exciting lecture on Recollections of the Past 40 Years in peptide Chemistry by Dr. Bruce Merrifield, Nobel laureate, which focused on past scientists and their contributions that have paved the way to what is now a mushrooming field of peptide chemistry in all aspects of biology. Session I and II and 189 posters discussed Synthetic and Analytical Methods, the cornerstone of our field. It is interesting to observe the continuing improvements to solution and solid-phase peptide chemistry such as new supports, coupling agents and optimization procedures, fragment condensation methods and enzymatic synthesis. The development of new instrumentation e.g., capillary electrophoresis, on-line HPLC with electrospray mass spectrometry, micro-peptide sequencing and ultra-fast HPLC is aiding, and will continue to aid greatly, the peptide chemist in purification and characterization peptides
