About this book

As the use of high-throughput screening expands and creates more interest in the academic community, the need for detailed reference materials becomes ever more pressing. Cell-Based Assays for High-Throughput Screening: Methods and Protocols aims to fill an important part of this need by providing an easily accessible reference volume for cell-based phenotypic screening. Leading researchers in the field contribute state-of-the-art methods with actionable protocols covering four major areas of study: model biological systems, screening modalities and assay systems, detection technologies, and approaches to data analysis. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular BiologyT series format, each chapter includes a brief introduction to the subject, lists of necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step laboratory protocols, and a Notes section detailing tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Cutting-edge and easy-to-use, Cell-Based Assays for High-Throughput Screening: Methods and Protocols presents an overview of relevant approaches, enabling the direct application of existing methods to new discoveries while also inspiring researchers to approach their screening projects in a conceptually modular fashion, enhancing the power to discover through new combinations of existing approaches.

From the reviews: "'Cell-based assays for high-throughput screening' is a highly practical resource, written by experts in each of the techniques ! . very useful from a practical point of view, and anyone looking to find a new assay system will find a wealth of ideas here. ! aimed at molecular biologists, many other scientists - such as natural product chemists looking for new lead molecules - should find it equally useful." (Elizabeth Williamson, Phytotherapy Research, September, 2009)
