AlgoNomics, Genmab Collaborate on Antibody Research

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Belgium’s AlgoNomics has entered into a research partnership with the Danish antibody company Genmab, the company announced today.
AlgoNomics plans to assist Genmab with detailed structural analysis of its fully human antibody molecules and antibody scaffolds, including Genmab’s new small, stable, modified antibody technology, UniBody.
Combined with experimental data, the companies believe structural information gleaned from AlgoNomics’ antibody structure database and structure-based protein and peptide design platform, Tripole, may reveal new functional or therapeutic properties for Genmab’s products.
AlgoNomics said that it will be eligible for Genmab research funding and milestone payments under the agreement, but did not disclose any other financial details or additional information about potential therapeutics.
