Researchers Develop Resource Tying Cancer Gene Characteristics to Small Molecule Sensitivities | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – In Cell this week, researchers led by the Broad Institute's Stuart Schreiber presented a resource that correlates the genetic characteristics of a few hundred cancer cell lines to their sensitivity to a number of small molecules.

To develop the Cancer Therapeutics Response Portal, Schreiber and his colleagues profiled the sensitivity of 242 genetically characterized cancer cell lines to more than 350 small molecules with well-described targets and activities.
