Extracting and Integrating Protein Localization Changes from Multiple Image Screens of Yeast Cells
Authors:  Alex X Lu, Louis-Francois Handfield and Alan M Moses, date: 09/20/2018, view: 2238, Q&A: 0
The evaluation of protein localization changes in cells under diverse chemical and genetic perturbations is now possible due to the increasing quantity of screens that systematically image thousands of proteins in an organism. Integrating ...
