ATG brings leading edge PepID technology to Netherlands vaccines symposium
Press Release | ATG:biosynthetics GmbH
NOVEMBER 06, 2017
Merzhausen, Germany: – Advanced synthetic biology company ATG:biosynthetics (ATG) will present highlights of its innovative PepID peptide epitope tagging technology to the upcoming vaccine symposium in the Netherlands.
ATG will show how its strong PepID’s computational algorithms allow it to generate deterministic DNA-encoded peptide libraries that can then be expressed for antibody recognition, either by high-density microarrays, colony immunoblotting or using cell surface display. The new methodology aims to maximize the efficacy of multi-epitope vaccines and enables the development of innovative tools for previously unmet diagnostic needs.
Antimicrobial drug design
The symposium is largely organized by the MycoSynVac project, which aims to use cutting-edge synthetic biology methodologies to engineer Mycoplasma pneumoniae as a universal chassis for vaccination.
ATG:biosynthetics will be represented at the symposium by its CEO, Dr. Hubert S. Bernauer and its CSO, Dr. Josef Maier.
“The Vaccines Symposium provides an important opportunity to network with elite researchers in our field and show how PepID technology can provide an important route to developing more effective multi-epitope vaccines,” said Dr. Bernauer.
