This book comprehensively describes the development and practice of DNA-encoded library synthesis technology. Together, the chapters detail an approach to drug discovery that offers an attractive addition to the portfolio of existing hit generation technologies such as high-throughput screening, structure-based drug discovery and fragment-based screening. The book:

  • Provides a valuable guide for understanding and applying DNA-encoded combinatorial chemistry
  • Helps chemists generate and screen novel chemical libraries of large size and quality
  • Bridges interdisciplinary areas of DNA-encoded combinatorial chemistry – synthetic and analytical chemistry, molecular biology, informatics, and biochemistry
  • Shows medicinal and pharmaceutical chemists how to efficiently broaden available “chemical space” for drug discovery
  • Provides expert and up-to-date summary of reported literature for DNA-encoded and DNA-directed chemistry technology and methods
