On the Horizon

Leading news, knowledge, and industry trends in genetic research
Functional genomic screening allows for the elucidation of the mechanism of action of exogenous agents which modulate intracellular gene function such as pharmaceutical agents and other compounds. Read about the various considerations, approaches and interpretations when conducting a screen to investigate novel compounds and analyzing the screening data.

Cell panel screening assays are an essential part of the drug discovery toolbox. However, fully resolving the drug response profiles of slow-acting therapeutics remains challenging with conventional short term assay formats. Elucidation of the effects of these drug candidates, and those that target epigenetic pathways, requires much greater optimization of longer-term assay conditions.
