EDDC Satellite Seminar Series: Cell Painting – An Unbiased, Colourful Future of Phenotypic Drug Discovery
Where Science meets Art, we are treated to images of cells splashed in vivid colours. This is the result of a high-content image-based assay technique called Cell Painting.
Cell painting is an in-depth image-based assay for cellular and morphological profiling using multiplexed fluorescent dyes for 8 cellular components. It can create multi-parameter image-based descriptions of the cellular response to any perturbator conditions like treatment with a small molecule, a siRNA, or CRISPR engineering. Cell painting technology empowers scientists with new ideas and strategies to identify new drugs and study mechanisms of action by leveraging machine learning to measure subtle phenotypic changes at the sub-cellular level.
Join us on 25 November (Friday), 3pm – 4pm at Biopolis for a talk on Cell Painting by EARO scientists from the HTP team.
EARO is EDDC’s fee-for-service arm and leverages on our expert know-how and technologies to offer ISO-certified technical support and consultation to early-stage drug discovery researchers.
