Cell biology has added immensely to the understanding of basic biologic concepts. However, scientists need to use cell biology more in the proteomic–genomic revolution. The authors have developed two novel techniques: transitional structural chemogenomics (TSCg) and transitional structural chemoproteomics (TSCp). TSCg is used to regulate gene expression by using ultrasensitive small-molecule drugs that target nucleic acids. By using chemicals to target transitional changes in the helical… 
Novel multistranded, alternative, plasmid and helical transitional DNA and RNA microarrays: implications for therapeutics.
These novel nucleic acid microarrays, together with pharmacogenomics, can be used to improve the study of DNA and RNA structure, gene expression, drug development and treatment of various diseases.
Novel Alternative , Multistranded , Plasmid , and Helical Transitional DNA and RNA Microarrays : The Next Generation of Nucleic Acid Microarrays
A DNA microarray is considered to be a multiplex research tool used for gene expression studies. It is a twodimensional array on a substrate surface that permits for the assaying of vast amounts of


Chemical genomics: a systematic approach in biological research and drug discovery.
Chemical genomics or chemogenomics is a new term that describes the development of target-specific chemical ligand and the use of such chemical ligands to globally study gene and protein functions and it is anticipated that chemical genomics plays a critical role in the genomic age of biological research and drug discovery.
Chemoproteomics as a basis for post-genomic drug discovery.
Chemoproteomics--the use of biological information to guide chemistry--offers a highly efficient alternative to small-molecule characterization that can accelerate drug discovery in the post-genomic era.
Chemical genomics in the global study of protein functions.
Small, cell-permeable and target-specific chemical ligands offer great therapeutic value. They can also be used to dissect diverse biological processes, such as cellular metabolism, signal
DNA array-based gene profiling: from surgical specimen to the molecular portrait of cancer.
The technical features characterizing this powerful laboratory tool are discussed and the applications so far described in the field of oncology are reviewed, with revolutionary implications for the clinical management of patients with cancer.
Chemical proteomics and its application to drug discovery.
The multidisciplinary science of chemical proteomics makes use of synthetic small molecules that can be used to covalently modify a set of related enzymes and subsequently allow their purification and/or identification as valid drug targets to accelerate the often difficult process of target validation and drug discovery.
Proteomic Tools for Cell Biology
This review will present a general overview of the currently available proteomic tools and then give examples of how these tools are being utilized to answer questions in cell biology.
Cell biology, chemogenomics and chemoproteomics
The scientific techniques used in molecular biological research and drug discovery have changed dramatically over the past 10 years due to the influence of genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics, resulting in a new scientific approach called chemogenomics.
Chromatin immunoprecipitation assay.
The critical parameters and the variants of ChiP as well as the different analytical tools that can be combined with ChIP to enable better understanding of DNA-protein interactions in vivo are addressed.

The chip principle has now become the dominating theme for a number of new genomics and proteomics technologies, culminating in the lab-on-a-chip concept which, in the next five to ten years, could advance at a comparable rate to that of computers over the last 50 years.
Proteomics: a powerful tool in the post-genomic era.
The technology and its applications in plant sciences are discussed, including photosynthesis investigations and proteomics, analysis of the protein complement of the genome.
