Phenotypic profiling in drug discovery

5 June 2019 | By , ,

Image-based phenotypic profiling of small molecules has been used for identification and characterisation of small molecules in drug discovery and can provide important insights into their mechanisms of action (MOA). This article discusses the use of phenotypic profiling in drug discovery and how machine-learning algorithms could help improve objectivity, processing…
