Chemical genomics is an unbiased, whole-cell approach to characterizing novel compounds to determine mode of action and cellular target. Our version of this technique is built upon barcoded deletion mutants of Saccharomyces cerevisiae and has been adapted to a high-throughput methodology using next-generation sequencing. Here we describe the steps to generate a chemical genomic profile from a compound of interest, and how to use this information to predict molecular mechanism and targets of bioactive compounds.
