  New high-throughput technology to map protein interactions
  -Synthetic yeast cells enabled to visualize molecular networks of the cell-

  Associate Professor Nozomu Yachie (Synthetic Biology) at RCAST, the
  University of Tokyo and researchers at University of Toronto have
  co-developed a high-throughput protein interaction technology BFG-Y2H.
  This new technology utilizing synthetic yeast cells as massive
  "bio-vials" achieved a higher throughput than ever before to identify
  protein interactions of the cell. Using BFG-Y2H, the researchers
  demonstrated that human protein interactions amongst ~2.5 million protein
  pairs can be screened by a single researcher in a few weeks. The new
  technology increases the efficiency of protein matrix screening, with
  quality that is on par with state-of-the-art protein interaction methods,
  and opens the door towards new biological researches underlying a big
  data of macromolecular webs.

  The results of this research were published on Molecular Systems Biology,
  Vol 12, Number 4.
