Zusammenfassung
Chemical genetics is a research approach that uses small molecules as probes to study protein functions in cells or whole organisms. Here, I review the parallels between classical genetic and chemical-genetic approaches and discuss the merits of small molecules to dissect dynamic cellular processes. I then consider the pros and cons of different screening approaches and specify strategies aimed at identifying and validating cellular target proteins. Finally, I highlight the impact of chemical genetics on our current understanding of cell biology and its potential for the future.
