CB 399: Assay automation and quantitation – from benchtop to HTS

Assay automation and quantitation – from benchtop to HTS

Are you interested in drug discovery or pharmacology? Do you have a great cell or biochemical assay that you would like to run in higher throughput using automation? Do you want to learn about small molecule screening? Could you benefit from learning new strategies for dose response assays? Would you like to learn more about approaches for quantitative analyses of assay results?
This course will be an introduction to the design of high throughput assays and small molecule screens, as well as relevant data analysis methods.
