We explicitly strive to accelerate three areas of drug discovery and development: Disease Target identification,Generation ofNovel molecules data, and Predicting Clinical trial outcomes
Our revolutionary drug discovery engine utilizes millions of data samples and multiple data types to discover signatures of diseases and identify the most promising targets for billions of molecules that already exist or can be generated de novo with preferred sets of parameters
Enabling multi-omics target discovery and deep biology analysis engine to considerably reduce required time from several months to the span of just a few clicks
Find novel lead-like molecules in a week through this automated, machine learning de-novo drug design and scalable engineering platform
Predict clinical trials success rate, recognize the weak points in trial design, while adopting the best practices in the industry

OMICs RESEARCH AND TARGET ID
OMICs data ANALYSIS
Access the full set of OMICs data generated by the scientific community so far. You do not need to spend your time trying to convert your data into an interpretable format or wait for a bioinformatician to do that for you — instead, you will find all the data already processed and uploaded in a uniform way, so you can focus on science and data interpretation.
Comprehensive PATHWAY ANALYSIS
Pathway analysis is a crucial step toward a complete understanding of how data works. It converts a list of seemingly unrelated genes into a connected story based on dysregulated molecular processes. PandaOmics uses a proprietary pathway analysis approach called iPanda to infer pathway activation or inhibition. Results published in Nature communications in 2016 demonstrated the algorithm outperforming other pathway analysis tools.
PandaOmics scoring approach is based on the combination of multiple scores derived from text and omics data associating genes with a disease of interest. This kind of approach allows us to unveil the hidden hypotheses that might not be obvious over common general knowledge or simple bioinformatics analysis. AI tools are extremely helpful for efficient target hypothesis generation. The overall scoring approach results in the ranked list of target hypothesis for a given disease (or disease subtype).
Once the gene list is prioritized according to the required strategy. Druggability filter uses traffic light logic and allows to filter target hypotheses according to their novelty, accessibility by small molecules and biologics and safety. Safety accounts for the involvement of the genes in toxicity related pathways and lethality of the corresponding gene knockout in mice. Additional filters include the protein and mRNA expression tissue specificity and protein class
GENERATION OF NOVEL SMALL MOLECULES
Define rewarding and penalty rules for molecule shape, chemical complexity, synthetic accessibility, metabolic stability, and other properties the novel molecules must satisfy.
Every new compound generated is annotated with all the properties, including physico-chemical parameters, binding scores, drug-likeness features and mapped on vendors' catalogs and proprietary libraries for any similarity and novelty
