In the years since the release of the popular first edition, the field of High Throughput Screening (HTS) has evolved considerably, from a small niche area of study to a major, essential scientific technique. In High Throughput Screening: Methods and Protocols, Second Edition, experts in the field fully update the previous edition to best serve as an introduction to HTS for scientists who are just entering the field, and as a provider of key, significant detail so as to be useful to scientists in established HTS operations. Featuring new screening technologies as well as many well established methods, chapters offer comprehensive treatment of the activities directly related to HTS, such as compound library management, data handling, and robotics. As a volume in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series, this work provides the kind of meticulous description and implementation advice that is crucial for getting optimal results. Authoritative and intrinsically practical, High Throughput Screening: Methods and Protocols, Second Edition promises to share the highest knowledge and enthusiasm with all those who use this versatile technology in their own labs.
