Book Description

Furnishing the latest interdisciplinary information on the most important and frequently the only investigational system available for discovery programs that address the effects of small molecules on newly discovered enzyme and receptor targets emanating from molecular biology, this timely resource facilitates the transition from classical to high throughput screening (HTS) systems and provides a solid foundation for the implementation and development of HTS in bio-based industries and associated academic environments.

…a valuable reference.
"-Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology

"…a well-referenced, highly professional, comprehensive, and in-depth treatment of a relatively complex approach to the discovery of bioactive substances….
…a recommended book for most private libraries of both academic and industrial pharmaceutical and agricultural chemists and biologists and a must acquisition for applicable and industrial libraries.
"-Journal of Medicinal Chemistry

"…an excellent compendium…covering the breath of current HTS. It will serve as a standard text in the field.
"-Journal of Natural Products

This recommendable book should be of great value for the entry in high throughput screening systems in industry and research. It gives a very useful and clear description of the development of HTS systems from finding resources and generating libraries to assay and detection methods and finally automation, data handling and laboratory design.
