Genedata Biologics for Streamlined Protein Engineering at PEGS Europe
News Nov 11, 2012
Genedata, a leading provider of advanced software solutions for drug discovery and life science research, has announced Genedata Biologics™ will be featured at the Fourth Annual PEGS Europe Protein & Antibody Engineering Summit. A first-in-class, end-to-end solution for biologics R&D, Genedata Biologics will be showcased at the PEGS session on "Enhancing Expression and Achieving Higher Throughput." The session will detail UCB Pharma's novel data management and workflow system based on Genedata Biologics and optimized for automation of high-throughput processes spanning molecular biology, expression, purification, and analytics. Co-presented by UCB Pharma and Genedata, the session will be held on November 7 (PEGS Europe Nov 6-8).
Recent advances in cell line development and automation technologies enable the parallel expression of large numbers of biomolecules. The collection, management, and interpretation of biologics data can be a time-consuming process that impedes efficient discovery and development of protein-based drugs. As an end-to-end data management system, Genedata Biologics addresses these inefficiencies. Collaborating with Genedata, UCB Pharma has further enhanced the Genedata Biologics system. Capabilities, which will be examined at PEGS, include:
-Comprehensive workflow support and knowledge management for antibody discovery
-Large-scale molecule generation via novel bulk in silico cloning tools
-Sophisticated biologics molecule and sample management (e.g. material genealogy)
-Integrated system for biotherapeutics and tool proteins (reagents)
-Centralized data access for scientists across different sites and groups
-Integration with corporate IT systems (i.e. humanization applications, ELN, etc.)
"We are continually innovating Genedata Biologics to support scientists in their daily research," said Dr. Othmar Pfannes. "Our work with UCB underscores that innovation, which extends Genedata Biologics' value beyond data management with enriched support for complex workflows, new technologies, and logistics."
Small imperfections in a wine glass or tiny creases in a contact lens can be tricky to make out, even in good light. In almost total darkness, images of such transparent features or objects are nearly impossible to decipher. But now, engineers at MIT have developed a technique that can reveal these “invisible” objects, in the dark.
For scientists wrestling with problems as diverse as containing superhot plasma in a fusion reactor, improving the accuracy of weather forecasts, or probing the unexplained dynamics of a distant galaxy, turbulence-spawning shear flow is a serious complicating factor. A new supercomputer-powered effort aims to make modelling shear far easier.
