Chemical probes are powerful reagents with increasing impacts on biomedical research. However, probes of poor quality or that are used incorrectly generate misleading results. To help address these shortcomings, we are building a community-driven online resource to improve quality and convey current best practice.
In this presentation, we will highlight some selected examples of promising, high-quality chemical probes and probes of lesser value. We will discuss the prevalence of using lesser quality probes and the costs. We will then detail our plans to develop the Chemical Probes Portal, a web-based resource annotated by the chemical biology community that allows users to reference the most appropriate chemical probe (or probes) for a given protein target. The Portal will be an online community of scientists, reviewers, editors.
