Chemical Screening and Chemical Library


Core Director:  Jennifer Fung, PhD

The High-Throughput Chemical Screening (HTCS) service of the Bioassay Facility Core provides EaRTH Center members with three important services to allow researchers to rapidly test chemical toxicity: 1) collection and maintenance of an environmental chemical library consisting of at least 250 chemicals to ease testing of compounds by providing a standardized set of environmental chemicals available to EaRTH Center members; 2) provision of an in vivo budding yeast model system to evaluate the effects of chemical compounds on cell proliferation, meiotic progression, and cell/subcellular morphology; and 3) provision of equipment and expertise to perform HTCS in various tissue culture cells for morphological changes using Cell Painting.



  • Chemical library - A repository of common environmental contaminants
  • High-throughput chemical screening - run chemical testing assays for chemicals or combinations of chemicals of interest
