The first atlas in many years giving researchers a good visual reference of the status of their cell lines. Given the increasing importance of well defined cellular models in particular in biomedical research this is a sorely needed resource for everyone performing cell culture.
Toni Lindl is Professor emeritus of the University of Applied Sciences in Weihenstephan, Germany, and CEO of the Institute of Applied Cell Culture Ltd., Munich. After studies of biochemistry and cell biology he obtained his PhD in neurochemistry. Following post doc fellowships at the University of Constance and Bonn, Germany, he founded the Institute of Applied Cell Culture Ltd. in 1981 and in 1990 received a professorship at the University of Applied Sciences in Weihenstephan. He is author of the first German textbook in cell and tissue culture (currently in its 7th Edition) and wrote more than 70 articles in many prestigious journals, among those are Nature, BBA, ALTEX etc. He is member of several cell biology societies and is engaged in the development of alternatives to animal testing (3R according to Russell and Burch). Rosemarie Steubing is head of the cell culture company CLS Cell Lines Service GmbH since 2004. After her study of chemistry and biochemistry at the Ruprecht-Karls-University Heidelberg, Germany, she obtained her Ph.D. in applying laser microirradiation to the fusion of single cells. Following two years as post-doctoral fellow at the Beckman Laser Institute, University of California, Irvine, USA, she has been working in molecular physiology and cellular immunology. In the field of laser micromanipulation and optical trapping of single cells, of single skeletal muscle fibers and motility assays using purified actin and myosin, she has authored several scientific publications and book chapters.
