Public resource boosts drug discovery, offers insights into protein function

Researchers have taken the Connectivity Map — a widely used resource of tools and data — to new heights with a massively scaled-up version. This expanded ‘connectivity map’ creates more than 1.3 million gene expression profiles of drug treatment and genetic perturbation, accelerating research on small molecules and gene function. For this new platform, the researchers have improved its accessibility for the scientific community, enabling studies of small molecule and gene function and informing clinical trials.
