Will working in peptide chemistry negatively affect me applying to grad school chemistry programs


Recommended Posts

Much of my undergraduate and post-bacc work has been centered around peptide chemistry, though I do have experience in general solution phase chemistry. Will this type of experience look worse than someone coming from more general synthetic chemistry backgrounds?

I ask because sometimes peptide chemistry is known as the 'red-headed step child' in part because much of the chemistry revolves around coupling/acylation reactions.

With that said, my application is very strong. Excellent GPA, scores, awards, publications/presentations, and generally extensive lab experience.
