Writing in Science, Fodor et al. describe an exciting strategy for the light-directed, spatially addressable parallel synthesis of a large number of chemically related yet distinct species on a glass surface - thus producing molecular diversity through combinatorial chemical synthesis. The technique provides a fresh way of tackling one of the fundamental problems of modern biology, namely molecular recognition, or how nucleic acids and proteins interact in a highly specific manner.
