Basics of image analysis in High Content Screening

Issue 6 2009, Past issues / 12 December 2009 /

Automated high content screening platforms are capable of producing thousands of images per day. The challenge is to use appropriate analysis methods to extract the maximum amount of biologically-relevant information from these images. In this article we summarise the basic concepts of image analysis and highlight examples of both open-source and commercial software that are available for use with image data sets generated using high-throughput methods.

Biomarker discovery and validation in clinical proteomics

Issue 3 2007 / 23 May 2007 / Professor Stephen R Pennington, Proteome Research Centre, Conway Institute of Biomolecular and Biomedical Sciences, University College Dublin

Until recently the use of proteomics in the biomedical arena has included programmes aimed at the elucidation of cellular responses to extracellular stimuli by known and potential drugs. It has been anticipated that these will lead to the elucidation of the basic mechanisms of cellular responses, potential identification of new drug targets and discovery of the mechanism of action of drugs both NCE’s and those currently in development.
