Technion Center for Structural Biology (TCSB)
The Technion Center for Structural Biology (TCSB), headed by Dr. Yael Pazy Benhar, has been established in order to support and enable Structural Biology research and three-dimensional structure determination of macromolecules, on an atomic level, using Crystallographic methods. Structure determination and detailed structural analysis, enable an in-depth, understanding of protein function and can pave the way for drug engineering of therapeutic targets and various other scientific goals. The TCSB provides advanced infrastructure, expertise, and professional supporting staff that allow for fruitful protein crystallization, data collection, and structural analysis. The TCSB hosts a Biophysical unit, equipped with advanced, state of the art technologies, that facilitate quantification of protein stability and intramolecular interactions
National Proteomics Center (Affiliated)
One of the first national infrastructure centers. Enables scientists in Israel to study all areas of proteomics and bioanalysis of proteins by access to advanced equipment as well as the skilled manpower needed to operate the equipment, advise on procedures and decipher results, in all areas of proteomics and protein bioanalysis. Activities in the center range from identifying and quantifying proteins to analysis of protein complexes and interactions and to large-scale comparisons of proteins and their posttranslational modifications, in healthy and diseased states. More than 72K different proteins and proteomics analyses projects with more than 200 research groups and 70 biotech companies were performed.
The Life Science and Engineering (LS&E) Infrastructure Center
The Life Science and Engineering (LS&E) Infrastructure Center was established in a joint effort by the Lorry I. Lokey Interdisciplinary Center and the Russell Berrie Nanotechnology Institute (RBNI) to provide researchers from various disciplines in Life Sciences and engineering a state-of-the-art Infrastructure Center. The Center provides cutting-edge Instruments, and serves researchers from the Technion, as well as other academic institutes and the industry. The Center offers services in the fields of light microscopy and imaging, flow cytometry, and next-generation sequencing (NGS). The center operates as a ‘knowledge-based center. The experienced and professional staff supports all researchers, from designing the experiments, working on the instrumentation, and further analysis of the results. The center also carries dedicated workshops and academic courses in the related fields.
Bioinformatic Knowledge Unit (BKU)
Nowadays, cutting-edge technologies enable the rapid collection of unprecedented amounts of data in life science and medical research. Obtaining biological insights from these data requires advanced computational resources and abilities. The mission of the Technion Bioinformatics Knowledge Unit (BKU) is to empower life sciences researchers at the Technion and its affiliated hospitals by providing them with state-of-the-art tools and support for data analysis and modeling such as next generation sequencing, proteomics, metabolomics, microscopy, molecular dynamics, docking, etc.
