Final Report - TIPS4CELLS (Scanning probe microscopy techniques for real-time, high-resolution imaging and molecular recognition in functional and structural genomics)

Project ID: 512101
Funded under: FP6-LIFESCIHEALTH

Abstract

This is the final report for the TIPS4CELLS project which received funding under the European Commission's Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). Its main aim was to develop new imaging tools, based on Atomic force microscopy (AFM), which would enable the study of multi-protein complexes in their native environment at unprecedented sensitivity and resolution.

The report covers initially some information about the project and then covers the participants involved. It goes on with stating the shortcomings of the AFM imaging tool and states the more promising tools that the project focused on. It then covers the main scientific areas that these tools would find application, namely in screening orphan molecules, as well as in biotechnology. The results achieved are also stated. The report concludes with the dissemination of knowledge activities.
