The cover picture shows a time line covering the ten years from the inception of ChemBioChem. Along the way are listed some of the hot topics of the last decade. The various images shown along the line can be found in the contributions of H. Waldmann, F. Diederich, C. A. A. van Boeckel and G. Schneider. The two strands of DNA make a good metaphor for the union of chemistry and biology. The coming together of these two disciplines has inspired the development of innovative ways to tackle biological problems and address questions in chemistry. What will happen and what evolves in the future from the concepts and ideas that are incorporated into the current strands of research remains an exciting open terrain.
