After having deciphered the human genome deciphering the molecular networks of the cell, encompassing the myriads of cellular
functionalities, is the next big challenge in human biotechnology. The precise knowledge of this entire functional plan, called the
toponome, is the prerequisite to understand the cellular functions of proteins and other elements of spatially determined molecular networks.
The first elementary Imaging Cycler® robot technology (a system for the imaging of the toponome) capable to decipher toponomes directly
in a cell or tissue has been established. It is the result of 20-years of continuous technology development. It runs cycles of fluorescence
tagging and imaging in situ. This technology combines several advances:
TNL offers training in toponome robotics and biology for graduates in engineering, informatics and life sciences. TNL employs specialists in robotics, automated imaging and related software developments for TNL worldwide activities.
