Physiomics to Use Simulation Software to Select Targets for Cronos

NEW YORK, Nov. 24 (GenomeWeb News) - Physiomics will select drug targets for Cronos Therapeutics using its cell cycle simulation software, the UK-based companies said yesterday.


Physiomics, located in Oxford, will use its mammalian cell cycle model, which is linked to PK-Sim drug delivery software from Bayer Technology Services in Germany, to select the best targets for Cronos' GeneICE gene silencing technology.


GeneICE prevents transcription by using cellular gene repressor complexes that interact with the target gene and modify its chromatin structure.
