Tumor Cell Panels in Cancer Research and Drug DiscoveryAugust 23, 2012, at 12:00 PM ET
Human cancer cell lines have been used as essential tools in both high-throughput drug screening and detailed molecular mechanism studies. This webinar will focus on genetic characterization of human cancer cell lines currently used in laboratories. Additionally, it will introduce how to choose the best cell lines and cell line panels for biological understanding of top genetic alterations across tumor types, and for testing small molecules or biologics for cancer drug development.
