The word "probe" is a broad term which can be interpreted to mean any one of a wide variety of agents. These include active chemistries discovered in academic screening labs or in government (MLPCN or the NIH), commercially available probes (i.e. dyes, antibodies, fluorescent proteins), failed drug candidates from Pharma, whole body or cellular imaging agents, specific biomarkers or tool molecules from chemogenomics and/or systems biology efforts. The goal of this conference is to bring all of the various incarnations of probe hunters together to share experience and network to a common purpose.
