ABSTRACT
The article reports on the new genetic roadmap developed by several scientists at the Broad Institute of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University. The roadmap can associate human diseases with potential drugs to treat them, and can anticipate how these new drugs work in human cells. The Connectivity Map works like Google search to find connections among drugs and diseases which are difficult to access because they are characterized in totally different scientific languages.
