biospectra

A term of art referring to the range of a particular compound’s pattern of protein-network perturbations. Comparison of the biospectra of different compounds shows that those with similar structures and pharmacological effects—e.g., nausea (side effect spectra)—cluster together, and that biospectra of novel compounds can be predicted from their molecular structure.
