Paving the road to drug discovery

There are many disadvantages to using human cells in the initial stages of creating a new therapy. Scientists often have to test a large number of compounds in order to find one that is effective against a particular target. Human cells are costly to take care of and require a lot of time and specific conditions in order to grow. Now researchers say that fission yeast may be used to find the next cancer cure….
