Geneious Biologics Gives Deeper Insight into Big Data

New Release Geneious Biologics Gives Deeper Insight into Big Data

AUKLAND – December 11, 2017 – Geneious Biologics, an enterprise software as a service (SaaS) solution used by companies engaged in commercial antibody screening and discovery, today released major new capability that will allow developers of biological drugs to analyze millions of raw antibody sequences in minutes, accelerating identification of therapeutic antibody candidates.

Announced today at the Antibody Engineering & Therapeutics Conference in San Diego, CA, the latest Geneious Biologics release will drastically improve analysis of large-scale next-generation sequencing (NGS) datasets, giving scientists better understanding of the diversity and quality of antibody libraries and immune repertoires.

“Geneious Biologics now has the power to analyze millions of NGS raw antibody sequences in minutes. The software lets users preview, annotate and compare NGS sequences with no manual intervention,” said Jannick Bendtsen, Vice President of Technology Services, Biomatters.

“This is a big milestone for Geneious Biologics and a huge step forward on our development roadmap. High throughput antibody sequencing technologies are revolutionizing the biologic drug discovery industry. However, dealing with huge volumes of associated data remains a challenge. Geneious Biologics now offers a real solution,” said Dr Bendtsen.

Geneious Biologics software applies intuitive visualization tools and advanced analytics capabilities to the identification of trends and relationships in massive NGS datasets, which have previously been difficult and time consuming to pinpoint.

Isogenica, a synthetic biology company that designs and builds diverse antibody libraries used by companies conducting antibody screening programs, validates the quality and consistency of its antibody NGS data with Geneious Biologics.

“Isogenica strives to provide licensees with the best possible synthetic antibody libraries – be it our llamdA™ camelid single domain antibody library or Alexandria™, our fully synthetic conventional human Fab library,” said Dr. Guy Hermans, CSO Isogenica Ltd, UK.

“Sanger and NGS sequencing play a critical part of the quality control of these Colibra™ built libraries, as well as in validating the results of selection campaigns. The computational power and intuitive interface of Biomatters’ Geneious desktop and now Geneious Biologics have significantly simplified our analyses of these vast datasets.”
