Drug Elucidation: Invertebrate Genetics Sheds New Light on the Molecular Targets of CNS Drugs

Article English OPEN
Dwyer, Donard S.; Aamodt, Eric; Cohen, Bruce; Buttner, Edgar A.;

Many important drugs approved to treat common human diseases were discovered by serendipity, without a firm understanding of their modes of action. As a result, the side effects and interactions of these medications are often unpredictable, and there is limited guidanc... View more
