Connectivity Map

  October, 2 2006 4:33
your information resource in human molecular genetics
This research effort aims to generate a detailed map that links gene patterns associated with disease to corresponding patterns produced by drug candidates and a variety of genetic manipulations. The Connectivity Map is the most comprehensive effort yet for using genomics in a drug-discovery framework.

One of the Connectivity Map's unique features is that it allows researchers to screen compounds against genomewide disease signatures, rather than a pre-selected set of target genes. Drugs are paired with diseases using sophisticated pattern-matching methods with a high level of resolution and specificity.
