In this talk, I review the recent progress of our group in the development of efficient quantum computer algorithms for electronic structure and chemical dynamics. I will also briefly discuss the potential of quantum computers to solve classical optimization problems such as the HP model for protein folding. We will describe the first quantum computer experiment to obtain the electronic structure of the hydrogen molecule, carried out in collaboration with the group of Andrew White at the University of Queensland, Australia.
