European Infrastructure of Open Screening Platforms for Chemical Biology

EU-Openscreen 2012

EU-OPENSCREEN, the European Infrastructure of Open Screening Platforms for Chemical Biology, integrates high- throughput screening platforms, chemical libraries, chemical resources for hit discovery and optimisation, bio- and cheminformatics support, and a database containing screening results, assay protocols, and chemical information.
These platforms – offering the most advanced technologies – will be used by European researchers from academia and SMEs in order to identify compounds affecting new targets. Open access to an integrated infrastructure for Chemical Biology will thus satisfy the needs for new bioactive compounds in many fields of the Life Sciences (e.g. human and veterinary medicine, systems biology, biotechnology, agriculture and nutrition).
