Presentation. Signal Transduction in Drug Discovery.

This presentation was used in conjunction with the laboratory exercise for a class of 300 second-year biochemistry students and outlines the use of technologies such as ALPHAscreen in drug discovery, their advantages over conventional techniques, and considerations for high-throughput assays, as well as providing some practical tips.
