The recent advances in wet-lab automation enable high-throughput experiments to be conducted seamlessly. In particular, the exhaustive enumeration of all possible conditions is always involved in high-throughput screening. Nonetheless, such a screening strategy is hardly believed to be optimal and cost-effective. By incorporating artificial intelligence, we design an open-source model based on categorical matrix completion and active machine learning to guide high throughput screening experiments. Specifically, we narrow our scope to the high-throughput screening for chemical compound effects on diverse protein sub-cellular locations. In the proposed model, we believe that exploration is more important than the exploitation in the long-run of high-throughput screening experiment, Therefore, we design several innovations to circumvent the existing limitations. In particular, categorical matrix completion is designed to accurately impute the missing experiments while margin sampling is also implemented for uncertainty estimation. The model is systematically tested on both simulated and real data. The simulation results reflect that our model can be robust to diverse scenarios, while the real data results demonstrate the wet-lab applicability of our model for high-throughput screening experiments. Lastly, we attribute the model success to its exploration ability by revealing the related matrix ranks and distinct experiment coverage comparisons.

A secreted matrix metalloproteinase that may play a role in matrix degradation during WOUND HEALING. It is expressed at high levels by KERATINOCYTES, suggesting its role in keratinocyte migration.
A mass spectrometric technique that is used for the analysis of large biomolecules. Analyte molecules are embedded in an excess matrix of small organic molecules that show a high resonant absorption at the laser wavelength used. The matrix absorbs the laser energy, thus inducing a soft disintegration of the sample-matrix mixture into free (gas phase) matrix and analyte molecules and molecular ions. In general, only molecular ions of the analyte molecules are produced, and almost no fragmentation occurs. This makes the method well suited for molecular weight determinations and mixture analysis.
