Program Snapshot

The Common Fund’s Library of Integrated Network-based Cellular Signatures (LINCS) program is developing a library of molecular signatures that describes how different types of cells respond to a variety of agents that disrupt normal cellular functions, called “perturbagens.” This library may help us better understand normal and diseased cellular states and how to alter them.

The program currently supports LINCS Data and Signature Generation Centers and coordinates with the NIH Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) initiative through a BD2K-LINCS Data Integration and Coordination Center.
