CELPHEDIA offers a better support for functional research in major model organisms. It is primordial to ensure preservation of the available models (e.g. mutant lines generated), as well as the experimental protocols used and the corresponding raw and analyzed data, in order to:
CELPHEDIA is committed to achieve the three sub-objectives to strengthen fundamental, biomedical and pharmaceutical research.
1 - To provide and to develop innovative, standardized and massively parallel technological approaches, for the scientific community:
2 - To favor translation of the results from a model organism to another.
3 - To perform a high throughput analysis of targets effects, either in normal or in pathological situations. Thus, a standardized functional exploration will be supplemented by more specialized analysis covered by all platforms, in connection with competitive research centers.
4 - To improve and standardize processes and protocols and thus facilitate national and international exchanges and access to the models of interest.
5 - To contribute to the international effort in the functional annotation of the genome and the understanding of human diseases.
