What is connectivity map

Matching directly transcriptional signatures of a disease with negatively correlated transcriptional signatures of chemical perturbations (CP) underlies the Connectivity Map (CMap) approach to identifying potential drug candidates. Similarly, correlating signatures of chemical perturbagens with genetic perturbations of specific genes has been used to identify putative targets of drugs and other chemical perturbagens.
