What other reason would you need to join the DebiChem team??? ;-)

Honestly: We all know that several programs can be used in different
sciences.  The Debian Med team is using several DebiChem maintained
packages in its Biology task (and I think DebiChem has some Debian Med
maintained packages in its tasks).  We just try to make sure those
scientific packages are team maintained and it has turned out to be a
quite reasonable thing to meet the standards of these teams.

As I said Debian Science became a bit "crowded" and so it sounds pretty
logical to join the Chemists inside Debian.  Other sciences will cherry
pick from your fine work.

Kind regards
