Chem-bla-ics

This new blog will deal with chemblaics in the broader sense, and will not be restricted to research in this field in which I am involved personally.

Chemblaics (pronounced chem-bla-ics) is the science that uses computers to address and possibly solve problems in the area of chemistry, biochemistry and related fields. The general denomiter seems to be molecules, but I might be wrong there.

The big difference between chemblaics and areas as cheminformatics, chemoinformatics, chemometrics, proteochemometrics, etc, is that chemblaic only uses open source software, making experimental results reproducable and validatable. And this is a big difference with how research in these areas is now often done.
