Publication: Transporter assays and assay ontologies: useful tools for drug discovery

Transport proteins represent an eminent class of drug targets and ADMET (absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion, toxicity) associated genes. There exists a large number of distinct activity assays for transport proteins, depending on not only the measurement needed (e.g. transport activity, strength of ligand–protein interaction), but also due to heterogeneous assay setups used by different research Read more about Publication: Transporter assays and assay ontologies: useful tools for drug discovery[…]

Publication: Open data for drug discovery: learning from the biological community

Drug discovery is undergoing a transformational change. Early-stage target identification, lead generation and optimization work is now undertaken in a much more diverse set of organizations, involving biotechnology companies and academia as well as large pharmaceutical companies.
