The aim of this chapter is to describe the stages of early drug discovery that can be assisted by techniques commonly used in the field of cheminformatics. In fact, cheminformatics tools can be applied all the way from the design of compound libraries and the analysis of HTS results, to the discovery of functional relationships between compounds and their(More)
Methods that monitor the quality of a biological assay (i.e., its ability to discriminate between positive and negative controls) are essential for the development of robust assays. In screening, the most commonly used parameter for monitoring assay quality is the Z' factor, which is based on 1 selected readout. However, biological assays are able to(More)
High-throughput screening, based on subcellular imaging, has become a powerful tool in lead discovery. Through the generation of high-quality images, not only the specific target signal can be analyzed but also phenotypic changes of the whole cell are recorded. Yet analysis strategies for the exploration of high-content screening results, in a manner that(More)
High-content screening (HCS) is increasingly used in biomedical research generating multivariate, single-cell data sets. Before scoring a treatment, the complex data sets are processed (e.g., normalized, reduced to a lower dimensionality) to help extract valuable information. However, there has been no published comparison of the performance of these(More)
BACKGROUND Computational support for high-content screening (HCS) is of paramount importance at several stages of the process: from the selection of compounds, to the image and data analysis all the way to hit identification and analysis of mechanisms of action. METHOD Here, we describe computational approaches to improve the benefit gained from HCS, such(More)
