Establishing cell painting in a smaller chemical biology lab – A report from the frontier

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review

In this paper we will outline the efforts we have made recently to establish the profiling platform known as cell painting in our laboratory. This platform, which is based on fluorescence microscopy, allows rapid and cheap access to bioactivity fingerprints for small molecules and thereby can contribute with important information in many experimental situations that is faced in laboratories involved in molecular probe design, mode-of-action studies or that perform focused phenotypic screens. We have tried to achieve the following two objectives: (1) provide a detailed description of the hurdles that we had to overcome during establishment and describe our final protocol; (2) provide a more pedagogical description of the different methods used to analyse and represent data from this experiment. Finally, we provide an example of how the method can be used to clarify mechanistic dichotomies.
