The Institute for Genomics & Systems Biology (IGBS) at the University of Chicago
invites faculty, staff and students to participate in a special seminar introducing the
IGSB/CBC Cellular Screening Center (CSC). Through the use of automation and
robotics, CSC is capable of screening more than 250,000 fluorescent or luminescent
reactions for cellular or enzymatic activities daily, and testing gene function via RNAi
screening of the entire human genome three times in a single day!
Lunch will be provided. If you wish to participate, please send your request to Aharon
Solomon, IGSB Research Director, at asolomon@uchicago.edu so we have an accurate
count.
