Science Matters: A Tantalizing Genomics Tool
This article was originally published in Start Up
Executive SummaryA recent paper in Science demonstrates the power of a chemical genomics-based Connectivity Map to identify the underlying mechanisms--in some cases surprising ones--of experimental drugs. Using this publicly available tool, drug developers may be able to get new information about the potential mechanism of action of the hits coming out of their screens
