Biocatalytic Sciences is broadly defined as experimental and computational efforts, both basic and applied, that advance the fundamental understanding and general utility of processes intrinsically dependent upon biocatalytic elements, such as cells, enzymes, RNA, and DNA.

Examples include: enzyme mechanisms, biochemical pathways, bioprocess monitoring, molecular biology processes, drug target development, cellular engineering, genetic engineering, metabolomics, transcriptomics, synthetic biology, green manufacturing (fuels, foods, materials), environmental remediation, medicines (vaccines, biologics, medicinal microbiome, genetic correction of diseases), and devices.
