Biognosys announces Nature Communications publication in collaboration with ETH Zurich, Bayer, and BASF

Share

Biognosys is pleased to announce the publication of new research findings in Nature Communications on the utility of its LiP technology and workflow for drug target identification. The publication,entitled “A Machine-Learning-Based Chemoproteomic Approach to Identify Drug Targets and Binding Sites in Complex Proteomes”, is co-authored by collaborators from ETH Zurich, Biognosys, Bayer and BASF.

In this publication, we present a novel chemoproteomic workflow combining LiP and machine learning-based data analysis. This next-generation proteomics approach enables the identification of small molecule drug targets in complex proteomes and the analysis of their binding properties across species and drug target classes.

Oliver Rinner, Chief Executive Officer of Biognosys, comments: “Understanding a compound’s mechanism of action remains a major challenge in drug development. This publication is a testimony to our commitment to support our pharma and biotech partners with unique applications for more efficient drug discovery.”

Lukas Reiter, Chief Technology Officer,states: “Biognosys’ quantitative proteomics technology based on data independent acquisition (DIA) is a perfect fit for the LiP technology. This combined workflow enabled us to develop a target deconvolution approach for human cell lines.”

Prof. Dr. Paola Picotti, Associate Professor in Molecular Systems Biology and head of the Picotti group at ETH Zurich, and Scientific Advisor for Biognosys, says: “With the LiP approach, we can now also identify compound-binding in very complex mammalian cell systems with high confidence. In addition, we get information on binding affinity, which helps us to prioritize targets for follow-up studies.”

Thomas Knobloch, Laboratory Manager at Bayer CropScience, adds: “The LiP technology is a very valuable tool to identify target and off-target of novel compounds whatever the organism and to support the process of target deconvolution in early phase research.”

Earlier this year, Biognosys published research findings demonstrating the utility of LiP-based proteomics for drug discovery at the US Human Proteome (HUPO) Conference and the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting.

About Limited Proteolysis (LiP)

The Limited Proteolysis technology coupled to next-generation quantitative mass spectrometry is a novel approach that enables the unbiased and proteome-wide profiling of protein changes resulting from a variety of stimuli such as heat shock, protein-protein interactions, compound binding, and posttranslational modifications.

Invented by the group of Prof. Paola Picotti at ETH Zurich, this patented technology is exclusively licensed to and co-developed by Biognosys to support pharma and biotech partners with contract research services for drug discovery and development. Biognosys already offers a LiP-technology based target deconvolution application and is developing additional, machine-learning-based applications for target validation.

Science, Data, and Facts Should Unite Decision-Making, Says PMI CEO in Speech at Concordia Summit24.9.2020 21:20:00 CESTPress release

André Calantzopoulos, CEO of Philip Morris International (PMI) (NYSE: PM), today delivered high-level remarks at the 2020 Concordia Annual Summit. Calantzopoulos discussed the impact that uncertainty, polarization, hyperpartisanship, and ideology are having on international efforts to overcome pressing global issues. He called for science to be protected from politicization and highlighted the importance of developing open dialogues based on factual scientific objectivity. Calantzopoulos shared PMI’s belief that with the right regulatory encouragement and support from civil society, cigarette sales can end within 10 to 15 years in many countries. The Concordia Annual Summit, which coincides with the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) meeting, convenes the world’s most prominent business, government, and nonprofit leaders to foster dialogue and enable effective partnerships for positive social impact. Excerpts of the remarks by André Calantzopoulos follow: “Reflecting on the state o

Swiss Medical Group Holding Acquires CoreMedica Europe24.9.2020 17:54:00 CESTPress release

Swiss Medical Group (SMG) Holding Luxembourg S.A., leading the development of STARKS Age-Management in Europe and Asia, announced today the acquisition of CoreMedica Europe, to expand in Europe and the rest of the world. CoreMedica Europe recently made the headlines in Switzerland for combining a COVID-19 Screening Test and Immunity profile with its existing home self-collection kit that allows customers to collect a few drops of blood and send them by mail to CoreMedica Europe’saccredited laboratory in Geneva to screen the anti-SARS-COV-2 IgG antibody and assess any previous infection to SARS-COV-2, the virus responsible for COVID disease, and analyze a set of 5 key biomarkers known to support the immune system (vitamin D, zinc, magnesium, copper, selenium) so as to receive personalized actionable recommendations to help patients build up their natural defenses against the effects of a next potential viral infection. “In this epidemic and containment context the essential objective o

Esri and AfroChampions Launch Partnership to Promote GIS in Africa24.9.2020 15:52:00 CESTPress release

Esri, the global leader in location intelligence, today announced a joint initiative with AfroChampions, a Pan-African nonprofit that aims to promote policies that foster private-public collaboration for Africa's economic transformation. The goal of the initiative is to engage leaders in business, governments, the African Union, and other regional economic communities through dialogue and potential partnership building in applying geospatial technology and solutions. This new partnership with AfroChampions seeks to contribute to sustainable economic development in Africa and promote the benefits of a shared geospatial infrastructure throughout the continent. As a majority of Africans still live in rural areas, geographic information system (GIS) technology can create new opportunities for growth, especially in critical fields such as health and telemedicine, land management, agriculture, and mobility. The powerful mapping and data analytics that GIS provides forms a foundation for some
