Screening Europe, February 17-18 2015 Berlin, Germ…


Screening Europe is back! After a break of four years during which we covered screening topics within the European LabAutomation event, SELECTBIO is delighted to re-introduce this popular conference. Hot topics to be covered include 3D cell based screening methods, the use of model organisms, and novel approaches for data analysis. Focus will also be given to the evolving use of phenotypic screening. Attending this event will…

New screening strategy introduced to develop possi…
Scientists have developed a new drug-discovery strategy, which will help them in rapidly selecting chemical compounds that will have a desired effect on cells. Chemical compounds are substances that get formed when two or more of the chemical elements get bonded together chemically. If it is a chemical mixture then the substances do not bound together. A compound is comprised of two or more number of elements. Some simple examples of chemical compounds are table salt and water.Hop over to these guys to learn how to write chemical compound formulas.Researchers from the Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) has also tried to highlight how these compounds will work. Scientists have identified a compound that shows promise for treating obesity-linked diabetes by using the innovative technique, and were able to identify…

Two-Layer Screen Locates Both Drugs and Targets
Scripps researchers are exploring a new screening method that combines a phenotype-based screen for compounds with a desired cellular effect, and a target-based screen to determine which molecular pathways are being affected. Rather than a purely phenotypic model, which often reveals promising drugs but does not reveal why they work, or a purely target-based model, which may exclude effective compounds because they do not hit…

Online resources supporting drug discovery
Abstract Online resources enabling and supporting drug discovery have blossomed during the past ten years. However, drug hunters commonly find themselves overwhelmed by the proliferation of these computer-based resources. Ten years ago, we, the authors of this review, felt that a comprehensive list of in silico resources relating to drug discovery was needed. Especially because the internet provides a wealth of inspiring…
