The Assay Guidance Manual: Quantitative Biology and Pharmacology in Preclinical Drug Discovery.

Paradigms and Technologies
Methods Development


The Assay Guidance Manual (AGM) is an eBook of best-practices for the design, development, and implementation of robust assays for early drug discovery. Initiated by pharmaceutical company scientists, the manual provides guidance for designing a "testing funnel" of assays to identify genuine hits using high-throughput screening (HTS) and advancing them through pre-clinical development. Combined with a workshop/tutorial component, the overall goal of the AGM is to provide a valuable resource for training translational scientists. This article is protected by copyright.
