SilicoLife provides dedicated models, robust algorithms and user-friendly software tools to accelerate strain design and bioprocess optimization, therefore accelerating R&D efforts and shortening the time to market of new biotechnology-based products.
Construction and Validation of Models
Mathematical models, together with proper simulation tools, are cornerstones in modern Biotechnology. These allow saving all kinds of resources, mainly those devoted to expensive wet lab experiments. Building accurate models of biological phenomena is a complex task for which most companies do not possess the required competences and/or resources. Given our team of experts and using the available Bioinformatics tools and data sources, we offer solutions for the construction and validation of models for organisms or biological processes of industrial interest. These models can be used as a mean to achieve better strains, achieving higher yields in the production of valuable compounds.
Custom Software Development
In many cases, the size and complexity of certain projects, as well as the investment and prospective profits, justify the development of custom software solutions for our clients. We provide a wide range of possibilities, since this includes simple plug-in development for the deployment-ready products, as well as full product development or even collaborating with other companies in software development projects.
Analysis and Integration of Experimental Data
The explosion of data verified in the last decades, in part due to the sequencing of genomes and new high throughput experimental techniques, makes the integration of heterogeneous data sources a complex task and promotes the importance of good methods to extract valuable knowledge from raw data. We have strong competences in the fields of Data Mining and Data Integration and we are able to provide solutions in these scenarios. These tasks are also of primordial importance in the processes of validation and improvement of the biological models.
Contract-Research and consulting
The state-of-the-art scientific recognition of our company is one of our watermarks. A special interest in contract-research projects, in collaboration with academic partners worldwide, is also our bet. Furthermore, given our specific and restricted know-how, consulting services are available to our customers.
