London, United Kingdom, May 29, 2020 --(PR.com
)-- Envisagenics is a spin out of the world-renowned Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) from the laboratory of Dr. Adrian R. Krainer, an expert in the field of splicing. The Krainer laboratory was the first to perform in-vitro splicing studies, identify the regulatory proteins of alternative splicing, discover the involvement of spliceosomal proteins in cancer and genetic diseases and finally prove the efficacy of RNA therapeutics to cure disease with the FDA approval of Spinraza for treatment of Spinal Muscular Atrophy.
Envisagenics will be presenting the latest case study on day one of the conference discussing:
Case study: Discovery and development of RNA-therapeutics for Triple Negative Breast Cancer
• Envisagenics’ SpliceCore platform integrates proprietary machine learning algorithms, high perfomance computing, and RNA-splicing analytics to identify disease-specific alternatively spliced RNA that will function as therapeutic targets
• Discovery of TNBC specific splicing isoforms
• Design and development of RNA-therapeutics targeting TNBC specific splicing isoforms using machine learning
• Functional qualification of SpliceCore designed ASOs
