Microarray technology is useful for screening many small molecules at once. Automated devices have made it possible for thousands of different small molecules to be printed as an array of spots on a glass slide. A single type of protein which has been tagged with a fluorescent marker can then...
In four presentations, Stuart L. Schreiber, PhD, and Eric S. Lander, PhD, open a window onto the fast-paced world of genomic science and chemical genetics.
To understand life's processes, perturb them. How a process responds to an insult can provide clues about normal function or mimic a specific disease state.
Scientists now have the ability to create millions of new molecules. How do they test whether any of these molecules are useful?
