The mission of the „National Infrastructure for Chemical Biology“ is to set up and operate the research center for basic and translational research in areas of chemical biology and genetics and provide Open Access to its users. CZ-OPENSCREEN infrastructure represents a national node of pan-European ESFRI infrastructure EU-OPENSCREEN that enable users to access yo intrnational reasearch platform and European Chemical Biology Library of compounds. The main aims of the CZ-OPENSCREEN research infrastructure are the identification of new molecular probes and tools for research and validation of compounds for the development of new therapeutics. Chemical biology represents new interdisciplinary scientific discipline bridging traditional research areas of cell biology, molecular and structural biology, biochemistry, organic chemistry and chem/bioinformatics and thus brings desired support for deepening the knowledge.
