AlgoNomics Gives Genmab Access to Bioinformatics Platform in Agreement

This article corrects the fact that AlgoNomics' platform -- not Genmab's platform, as originally reported -- is intended for T-cell epitope identification.

NEW YORK, May 12 (GenomeWeb News) - AlgoNomics  has granted Genmab access to its Epibase structural bioinformatics platform for three years, the companies said today.

 

The AlgoNomics platform is intended for T-cell epitope identification. Epibase can be used "to validate the intrinsically low immunogenicity of our fully human therapeutic antibody leads that are currently in clinical and pre-clinical phases," said Jan van de Winkel, Genmab CSO, in a statement.

 

Financial details of the agreement were not disclosed.
