Description

Due to the failing “one-drug-fits-all” model, it has become increasingly necessary to develop personalized medicine that treats whole systems and brings the right drug to the right patient with the right dosages. In Systems Biology in Drug Discovery and Development: Methods and Protocols, leading experts provide a practical, state-of-the-art, and holistic view of the translation of systems biology into better drug discovery and personalized medical practice. While the first part of the book describes cutting-edge technologies and methods in the field, the second part illustrates how the technologies can be applied in science for disease understanding and therapeutic discovery. As a volume in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series, this collection provides the kind of detailed description and implementation advice that is crucial for getting optimal results. Authoritative and up-to-date, Systems Biology in Drug Discovery and Development: Methods and Protocols covers topics from fundamental concepts to advanced technologies in order to best serve biomedical students and professionals at all levels who are interested in vital integrative studies in molecular biology, genetics, bioinformatics, bioengineering, biochemistry, physiology, pathology, microbiology, immunology, pharmacology, toxicology, drug discovery, and clinical medicine.

Key features

  • Focuses on direct application of systems biology approaches in drug development and clinical practice
  • Advances the goal of truly personalized medicine
  • Includes expert tips from successful labs from around the world
  • Part of the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series
