Identification and Characterization of Strain Specific Drug Target by Subtractive Genome Analysis of Methicillin Resistance Staphylococcus aureus
Kiran Saeed and Reaz Uddin

This study aimed to identify and characterize strain specific essential protein targets, which will eventually help in the identification of druggable proteins in two strains of MRSA by using different Bioinformatic tools and databases. We adopting a subtractive genome approach within the domain of Computational Biology.

Low cost, low footprint, expandable automated biobanking solutions
James Craven, Chris Morris, Maud Godfrey, Danielle Miller

This case study describes how TTP Labtech’s comPOUND storage modules have been employed by Abcam, a worldwide supplier of antibodies. Here, the turnaround time of sample placement and retrieval is an essential component for high quality service to its customers.

Automated Genomic DNA QC Ensures High Quality Data from Downstream Workflows
Arunkumar Padmanaban, Ruediger Salowsky, Delphine Rabiller and Donna McDade Walker

The success of several genomics study depends primarily on the quality of starting material, which in most cases is the genomic DNA. The quality and quantity of the extracted genomic DNA affects the downstream applications like microarray studies, library constructions and gene expression studies.

High-Throughput Analysis of DNA Samples using the D1K ScreenTape Assay and the Agilent 2200 TapeStation System
Arunkumar Padmanaban, Ruediger Salowsky, Adam Inche

Recent advances in genomics demands to look at a wealth of genetic information in a short period of time. DNA analysis using slab gel electrophoresis and capillary electrophoresis are widely being used as a QC step in next generation sequencing and microarray studies. However, often these techniques lack the speed and involve more manual steps to perform the assay.

RNA Quality Control using the Agilent 2200 TapeStation System –Assessment of the RINe Quality Metric
Arunkumar Padmanaban, Ruediger Salowsky, Charmian Cher

Here, we present a comparative study between the RINe quality score obtained from R6K ScreenTape and High Sensitivity R6K ScreenTape compared to the RIN quality metric obtained from the 2100 Bioanalyzer system.

A Crystallographic-Based Fragment Screen Against Human BRD4 Bromodomain 1
Hubbard P, Ritchie A, Hughes S, Lipkin M, Blackaby W & MacLeod A

Fragment-based drug discovery has now become firmly established as an important method in the lead discovery process, and is an integral component of drug discovery at BioFocus. Using a selection of compounds from our fragment collection, we have performed a crystallographic-based screen against human BRD4 bromodomain 1.

Application of the SoftFocus® Design Strategy to Epigenetics Targets
Sheppard D, Macritchie J, Allen V & Hughes S

Epigenetics describes the regulation of gene expression that occurs through DNA methylation and post translational modification of histones. The pharmaceutical industry has shown an explosion of interest in this field with new targets emerging.

Fragmentor: A New Technique to Facilitate Scaffold Design for Library Generation
Sheppard D, Macritchie J & Allen V

The requirement for novel starting points to ignite drug discovery projects is always high for emerging targets. Over the past 12 years BioFocus has built an impressive track record for the successful and original design of high quality libraries.

Novel Antimalarial Drug Candidates Generated In Silico by Analysis of Public HTS Data
Robert Fraczkiewicz, Michael S. Lawless, Robert D. Clark, and Walter S. Woltosz

This research aims to provide proof-in-principle that in silico tools could be applied to public data so as to efficiently identify active chemistry with good ADMET properties.
