• #### Data-Driven Derivation of an "Informer Compound Set" for Improved Selection of Active Compounds in High-Throughput Screening. ﻿

(American Chemical Society, 2016-09-26)
Despite the usefulness of high-throughput screening (HTS) in drug discovery, for some systems, low assay throughput or high screening cost can prohibit the screening of large numbers of compounds. In such cases, iterative ...
• #### Experimental validation of in silico target predictions on synergistic protein targets ﻿
