Crown Bioscience has published a further enriched version of its XenoBase, the online database collating cell line and cell line derived xenograft model data.

With the new XenoBase feature, users will now be able to directly search and interact with dose response curves and IC50 data for over 290 cell lines, providing the ability to rapidly review and select the most appropriate model for their in vitro studies.
