A new laboratory for automated acquisition and on-line analysis of microscopic images will be established. The laboratory will be used for the investigation of the mechanisms of the induction of deleterious health diseases. The techniques of diagnostics and prevention will be also studied. The laboratory will be set up with the help of scientists from the Institute of Biophysics, ASCR. New methods of optical microscopy will be developed in collaboration with Oxford group. The image acquisition and analysis will be performed using the computing facilities of Faculty of Informatics, Masaryk University, particularly, the Supercomputing centre. The laboratory will be one of the first of such kind in the world. High-quality results on the chromatin structure, its changes and clinical significance are expected.
