Eidgenoessische Technische Hochschule Zurich
ETH Zurich was founded in 1855 and is today one of the leading internationaluniversities for technology and the natural sciences. ETH Zurich has more than 17,000students from approximately 80 countries, 3,700 of whom are doctoral candidates. Morethan 400 professors teach and conduct research in engineering, architecture, mathematics,natural sciences, system-oriented sciences, and management and social sciences.
The Functional Genomics Center Zurich (FGCZ) of ETH Zurich and University of Zurich is a research and training facility that provides collaborative access to state-of-the-art Omics technologies and analytical, as well as data analysis expertise and support. Besides the Proteomics section of the center, technologies and research applications in Genomics, Transcriptomics, and Metabolomics are supported via a large array of technologies including 3 microarraying platforms, 7 next generation sequencing platforms, plus a vast diversity of computing infrastructures and tools. The Proteomics platform of the center currently consists of 17 high-end mass spectrometers including FTICR,Orbitrap, latest Q-TOF, triple quadrupole, and TOF/TOF instrumentation. These technologies enable the FGCZ to support all of today's cutting edge proteomics approaches, as well as the development of the next generation of proteomics methods and tools.
