The Discovery and Utility of Chemical Probes in Target Discovery Editors: Paul Brennan, Saleta Vazquez Rodriguez


About this book

Numerous genetic methods can be utilised to link a phenotype to a single molecular target but annotated small molecule chemical probes and even entire chemogenomic libraries are increasingly being used as a complementary approach. This book will comprehensively cover the state of the art in chemical probes and best practice for use in target discovery, illustrated throughout with examples. Ideal for students and established biochemists, the book will also cover new technologies for probe discovery, new probe modalities, the new field of probes for RNA targets and the mature field of kinase chemical probes.
