Courses offered by CBCS
Currently there are two courses given at CBCS. One is a web-based theoretical course, giving a basic introduction to high throughput screening. The other is a one week practical course given in collaboration with LCBKI. The theoretical course is a prerequisite for taking the practical course.
Introduction to High Throughput Screening (2 ECTS)
The course gives a broad introduction to high throughput screening (HTS) which technique is used to identify biologically active small organic molecules through screening of compound libraries with the help of robust test systems and advanced instrumentation.
Participants can start at any time and study at their own pace since the course is entirely web-based. The course material is in English, consisting of text and explanatory figures, video lectures, review articles, and movies.
Assay development in High Throughput Screening (2 ECTS)
The course gives a practical basis for assay development in high throughput screening. The course is given as complement to the theoretical on-line course "Introduction to high throughput screening" (see above). Passed examination of the theoretical course is a prerequisite for taking the practical.
