Title: Glossary of terms used in biomolecular screening

Task Group
John Proudfoot

Members: Dominique Besson, Jan Blanchard, Denis Crankshaw, Guenter Gauglitz, Robert Hertzberg, Carol Homon, Lyndon Llewellyn, John Major, Olivier Nosjean, Pascal Villa, Larry A. Walker, and John Wang

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.
