Original Robot

This is the original laboratory robot used for the initial rediscovery task and for the subsequent genuine discovery task. However, from January 2006 the main functions of this robot will be performed by a shiny new automated laboratory. The original robot will then be used in a project investigating how the production of multiple-knockout yeast strains can be automated.
