Partnership Joins Protein Sequencing Technology With AI Visualization to Further Unlock the Human Proteome for Novel Drug Discovery
- This partnership combines Quantum-Si’s expertise in single molecule protein sequencing with Biovista’s AI visualization technology to facilitate faster and more efficient protein drug target discovery.
Quantum-Si Incorporated (Nasdaq: QSI) (“Quantum-Si,” “QSI” or the “Company”), The Protein Sequencing Company™, today announced that it entered into a partnership and license agreement with Biovista to provide customers greater proteomic insights beyond their protein sequence output. Biovista leverages AI in multiple formats to analyze massive data repositories and visualize non-obvious networks and associations between proteins, diseases, and drug mechanisms-of-action. The partnership enhances Quantium-Si’s offering by making proteomic-to-drug workflows more efficient for researchers.
Biovista’s VIZIT™ exploration tool will be integrated into Quantum-Si’s cloud based suite of analytic tools enabling researchers to visualize the connections of their protein sequences identified during their experiment to diseases, other proteins, and post-translational modifications. This allows researchers to uncover potential mechanisms and biomarkers relevant to specific diseases more efficiently and effectively.
“Quantum-Si’s protein sequencing technology in concert with Biovista’s database and visualization technology can aid in the discovery of new proteins for future therapeutic targets associated with disease.” said Jeff Hawkins, CEO of Quantum-Si. “The potential can also extend to discovering new biomarkers for clinical research and diagnostics.''
"Quantum-Si is leading the next generation of real-world meaningful sequencing," said Dr. Aris Persidis, Biovista’s Co-Founder and President. "We are excited to see deep sequencing and insight generation now available in one integrated platform,” he continued.
