NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Emerald BioStructures and UCB have extended a collaboration aimed at identifying multiple targets in the drug discovery process, Emerald announced on Thursday.

UCB will implement a biological registration system for protein-based lead candidates based on Genedata's Biologics software.

The firms achieved a second milestone in their drug discovery pact, which utilizes Emerald's X-ray crystallography platform.

The agreement calls for the company to apply its mass spec-based phosphoproteomics platform to the study of cell signaling pathways targeted by UCB's therapeutic antibodies and to identify potential protein biomarkers linked to the drugs.
