EATRIS Center for Large-scale cell-based screening

The center is an official node of EATRIS (European infrastructure for translational medicine), it provides access to various high throughput methodologies for genome-wide screens. This unit is of importance for a wide array of applications in cell and molecular biology, microbial evolution, drug/antibiotics screening and biotechnology.

The infrastructure consists of robots and automated phenotyping devices that are used in genome-wide approaches in many fields of bioscience. Software and databases have been developed for data generation, analysis, storage and presentation. Moreover, existing massive microbial strain collections are a fundament of the screening services that the infrastructure delivers.
