Recent advances in quantitative high throughput data analysis

Parker, Christian and Moutsatsos, Ioannis (0018) Recent advances in quantitative high throughput data analysis. Expert Opinion On Drug Discovery.


High throughput screening has become a basic technique with which to explore biological systems. Advances in screening technology are driving the need for improvements in the analysis of the data sets derived from such screens.

Areas covered
The article will cover recent advances in the analysis of high throughput screening data sets from arrayed samples as well as the recent advances in the analysis of cell-by-cell data sets derived from image or flow cytometry application.

Expert opinion
As data sets become larger and more complex the need for easily accessible data analysis tools will continue to grow. The presentation of such complex data sets, to facilitate quality control monitoring and interpretation of the results will require the development of novel visualizations.
