To provide standardized definitions of terms and technologies
used in biomolecular screening supporting drug discovery.
Over the past 15 years, high throughput screening (HTS) of small
molecules has become a mainstay in the drug discovery process both
in lead discovery and lead optimization. In both HTS and routine screening
to optimize lead structures, new technologies, techniques and terminology
have emerged. A definitive glossary of biomolecular screening terms
will be broadly useful to scientists involved in the drug discovery
process. The glossary will be generated in collaboration with the
Society for Biomolecular Screening.
