Bioinformatics

We have delivered sustainable software solutions in many different domains over the years, a testimony of the flexibility of our teams to create value consistently.

Bioinformatics services

Our team, led by Leandro Radusky, brings expertise evidenced by a rich portfolio of publications and applications. We offer specialized bioinformatics services and pipeline development focused in organism target prioritization, structural analysis & engineering, and virtual screening & docking, tailored to accelerate your research and development projects.

Organism target prioritization 1

Our proficiency in organism target prioritization is underscored by our extensive publication record on human and cattle pathogens. We excel in building advanced pipelines and interactive websites, demonstrating our ability to manage and integrate vast datasets from varied sources (NGS, functional data, structural data, etc). Our work encapsulates the development and deployment of sophisticated bioinformatics tools and platforms, enabling the seamless identification of potential therapeutic targets.

Key Services:

Structural analysis & engineering 2

Our structural analysis and engineering services are distinguished by our significant contributions to the field, underscored by our development of innovative tools such as VarQ, FoldX, and pyFoldX. These contributions underscore our expertise in analyzing the impact of protein mutations, engineering proteins and other biomolecules for enhanced functionality, and manipulating biomolecules for precise applications.
