Introducing Magpie - a Multiplexed Automated Gene Editing Evaluation Pipeline

Engineered nucleases developed to edit targeted genomic loci and engineered vectors developed to express exogenous transgenes are rapidly advancing as powerful modalities for modulating biological systems. Applying these technologies to longstanding problems in human therapeutics, agriculture, environmental remediation and sustainable industrial practices holds great promise to generate a new wave of innovative products. In order to harness this potential, particularly in therapeutic and agricultural settings, efficiency and specificity are ‘must have’ requirements. Engineered nucleases and transgenes must be selectively delivered to their target site, operate at high efficiency and modulate only the biology they are designed to modulate. Demonstrating specificity will ultimately determine if these promising approaches can achieve translational success.

Part 3:  Achieve Your Milestones Faster With a Life Sciences R&D Cloud Platform

In part two of this series, we demonstrated that knowledge products derive their value by possessing unique insights about a therapeutic target, disease or new molecular entity.  Great information architecture is a fundamental building block that enables a company to engineer its insight production process and accelerate the creation of valuable knowledge products.  In this post, we will describe how a life sciences R&D cloud platform can accelerate turning unknowns into knowns by significantly increasing the amount of data and information that a company can process.

Part 2:  Achieve Your Milestones Faster With a Life Sciences R&D Cloud Platform

In part one of this series we showed that life sciences companies must first sell knowledge products to corporate partners, regulators and investors well before they sell new therapeutic products to patients.  Implementing a life sciences R&D cloud platform can reduce the time required to achieve key milestones, increase, increase organizational efficiency and serve as a source of competitive differentiation.  This post will describe how engineering information architectures can accelerate the process of creating unique insights that enable companies to monetize their knowledge.

Welcome to the Catalytic blog!

Hello, life sciences community, and welcome to the Catalytic Blog. At Catalytic, we’re working hard to build a new kind of platform that makes researchers more productive and life sciences companies more successful. We will be writing about why building technology for life sciences companies is so meaningful and why it’s so challenging.
