Our Discovery Platform empowers us to identify crucial biological patterns within vast biomedical datasets. Leveraging proprietary algorithms for multi-modal single-cell analysis, we reconstruct developmental processes, gene regulatory networks, signaling pathways, and gene expression programs linked to the onset, progression, stem cell differentiation, and development of diseases.

Our Generative Biology Platform employs cutting-edge deep learning techniques to generate novel molecules with precise properties, accelerating cell therapy and drug discovery. These molecules target genes and pathways identified in our Gene Discovery platform, offering enhanced control over gene expression in specific cell types.

With our Cell Therapy Platform, we harness the power of our Generative Biology and Gene Discovery platforms to pioneer the next generation of intelligent, living biotherapeutics. Our focus initially centers on combating cancer, utilizing cell-based treatments as a transformative alternative to traditional drugs.
