High Throughput Screening

About the Facility

The High-Throughput Screening (HTS) Facility was established at the ICGEB Trieste in 2008 as a result of a collaborative project involving four research centres in Northeast Italy (ICGEB Trieste, LNCIB, SISSA, CIME), financed by the Friuli-Venezia-Giulia Regional Government.

The main goal of the HTS Facility at the ICGEB is to facilitate the application of high-throughput screening approaches, in particular genome-wide RNA interference screening (siRNA and miRNA), to fundamental biomedical research by providing a platform of up-to-date instrumentation and adequate expertise to the research community. The HTS Facility participates in collaborative research projects that fall into the broad concept of using genome-wide siRNA and miRNA high-throughput screening technologies to enlighten biological processes.

The HTS Facility at the ICGEB was the first academic Research Facility in Italy suited to perform high-throughput, genome-wide siRNA and miRNA screenings.

In the period 2008-2015, the activities performed at the HTS Facility were coordinated by Miguel Mano.

The HTS Facility is affiliated to the RNAi Global Initiative, a world-wide network of leading academic research institutions working in the field of RNAi screening.


Collaboration and Training

The HTS Facility welcomes collaboration to perform genome-wide siRNA and miRNA screenings using high-throughput and high-content screening technologies.

Research groups external to the ICGEB are welcome to contact the HTS Facility concerning collaborative projects and training opportunities.

Although priority is given to screening projects, the HTS Facility also collaborates in small-scale research projects that benefit from the use of the available equipment and accumulated expertise in automation, assay development and data acquisition/analysis.
