RISC - RNAi Image-based Screening Center - a sub-division of the Light Microscopy Centre, ETH Zürich

Light Microscopy Centre

Field of research
As the name implies, this facility is dedicated towards high-content screening applications. These are not exclusively limited to RNAi based studies, but can be also cDNA or small-molecule based screens although the main focus (expertise) is certainly towards RNAi based screens.
 
Specific Contribution to Research in InfectX
Performing genome-wide RNAi screens requires the use of established platforms with high-throughput equipment. In addition to the screening platform established at the Biozentrum, Basel, RISC are providing an additional screening platform for InfectX. RISC are aliquoting screening libraries assisting with the coordination of screening. The screens on Shigella, Bartonella and Listeria are being performed at the Biozentrum whereas the screens on Salmonella and on the different viruses are being performed at RISC.
