Screening Book from C.H.I.P.S.

High Content Screening
Science, Techniques, and Applications
edited by Steven A. Haney

High Content Screening provides comprehensive coverage of HCS in four sections:

  • The basics of HCS, from the definition to detailed discussions of component technologies
  • Examples of HCS used in biological applications and early drug discovery, with an emphasis on applications in oncology and neuroscience
  • The use of HCS across the drug development pipeline
  • Data management, data analysis, and systems biology, with guidelines for using the large datasets generated by HCS in systems-level studies

High Content Screening covers:

  • A wide range of topics, including assay development, cell culture, image processing, robotics, database architecture and management, model systems for analysis, and more
  • Focused discussions on imaging in 3D, imaging of tissues for pharmacodynamic studies, and screening of both small molecule and RNAi libraries by HCS
  • The roles of bench researchers and IT personnel in implementing and maintaining HCS platforms
  • The challenges and advantages of using HCS today, and a look at future directions
