Chemical genomics requires continued advances in combinatorial chemistry, protein biochemistry, miniaturization, automation, and global profiling technology. Although innovation in each of these areas can come from individual academic labs, it will require large, well-funded centers to integrate these components and freely distribute both data and reagents.
