Brief Description of Core: The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology runs a Virtek/BioRad Robotic colony arrayer for whole-genome genetic and drug-sensitivity screening against the entire set of Saccharomyces cerevisiae gene deletion strains. Arrayed sets of all heterozygous diploid and viable haploid deletion strains are available for analysis and can be tailored to 384- and 1536-colony per plate screening. An SP-Imager photo-documentation system with dedicated colony analysis software is available for quantification of robot-generated data. We also maintain a TECAN Infinite F200 shaking incubator/microplate reader for high-throughput analysis of yeast growth rates; this instrument also has various filter sets available for fluorophore analysis.
