about this Topic

High throughput screening is one of the dominant and widely utilized method to identify novel pharmacological agents. With a carefully designed assay and a good collection of compounds, novel chemical classes of ligands for a target can be identified. This approach can be used to identify active site directed and allosteric modulators of targets. In this special edition, designing robust screening assays using novel technologies and the success of using such approaches will be discussed with case studies. In addition, compound library, diversity, and its significance in identifying quality hits will be covered. Lastly, assay interference is a common problem faced by HTS campaigns, novel technologies used to overcome this will be discussed.
