Identification of Downstream Effects in Signalling Pathways
Gene expression analysis reveals correlations between drug sensitivity and elevated or decreased expression levels without prior knowledge on the affected biological processes. The comprehensive analysis includes mRNA data of 18,900 genes and can therefore find unexpected relationships. To support decision-making on next steps, we also perform the analysis on smaller subsets of genes, such as cancer genes and clinically actionable genes. Protein-protein interaction network plots are analysed for genes that are known to physically interact — for example, genes that are part of the same pathway.
Your Compound’s Cancer Gene Expression Signature Is Compared to 180 Therapeutics
Unique biological markers for your compound are found by mapping the top-scoring genes against a collection of anti-cancer agents that represent a wide variety of mechanisms, (e.g. PARP inhibitors, kinase inhibitors, epigenetic modulators). You can directly see that your compound has a distinct profile from competitive therapeutics.
