AgenT creates Blood Diagnostics
Blood-based diagnostics generally operate with threshold values. They yield a positive result if the levels of certain biomarkers are above a threshold. However, this is not useful for progressive diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Multiomics-based diagnostics integrate multiple layers of information to increase the sensitivity of diagnostics.
French startup AgenT provides blood diagnostics solutions. The startup’s multiomics platform utilizes Artificial Intelligence (AI) to identify biomarkers linked with different stages of Alzheimer’s. It combines information on proteins and metabolites to improve the sensitivity and specificity of diagnosis. By enabling early detection of the onset of Alzheimer’s, the startup’s solution helps clinicians optimize precision therapies.
OmniTier offers Tertiary Analysis
Due to developments in omics technologies, BioTech companies now possess large amounts of data at hand. Biological data analysis is critical to leveraging this data for applications across sectors. Tertiary analysis converts primary and secondary data into biological insights. Moreover, it allows companies to put biological variation in the context of populations.
OmniTier is a US-based startup that offers tertiary analysis for clinical, pharma, and research organizations. It utilizes a distributed, tiered memory-based technology to enable high-performance computing. CompStor Insight, the startup’s solution, allows researchers and clinicians to run next-generation sequencing (NGS) results. The multiomics platform supports custom omics workflows and databases and visualizes the results in an intuitive user interface.
Fauna Bio develops Translational Therapeutics
The unprecedented ability to generate large amounts of biological information, and interpret it, is driving innovation in the BioTech industry. With advances in different omics technologies, BioTech startups are now bringing them together to advance translational diagnostics and therapeutics. For instance, while tackling the COVID-19 pandemic, multiomics approaches have been crucial in understanding how the virus works.
Fauna Bio is a US-based startup identifying novel translational therapeutics in animal genomes. The startup’s multiomics drug discovery platform integrates data from multiple proprietary sources to identify novel drug targets. The startup focuses on genetic, epigenetic, and proteomic data from hibernating animals. Since these animals survive in extreme temperatures without food for long periods, Fauna Bio uses their data to derive insights on physiologically protective mechanisms.
Govita Tech enables Preventive Health
The genome and metabolome possess hints about an individual’s risk to particular diseases. Genomics and other omics technologies allow predicting the risk of disease onset. This enables a new paradigm in the form of preventive health. By combining insights from different omics technologies, startups personalize preventive health interventions to each patient.
Chinese startup Govita Tech develops molecular biomarker panels for preventive health applications. The startup combines genomics, metabolomics, and bioinformatics to interpret phenotype from genotype, predicting disease risk. It then recommends interventions and health plans that reduce the risk of disease onset. The startup’s solutions integrate multiomics and clinical phenotyping to provide insights into health and aging.
My Intelligent Machines (MIM) provides Biological Systems Modeling
A better understanding of biological systems is critical to further advances in the BioTech industry. However, biological systems are incredibly complex. This is why any single omics technology is often unable to provide valuable insights on disease progression, metabolic output, or any other function. Multiomics solutions integrate different kinds of biological information to model biological systems and derive valuable insights.
Canadian startup My Intelligent Machines leverages AI and big data to help BioTech companies maximize production. The startup’s platform, MIMsOmic, combines systems biology, bioinformatics, and machine learning to model biological systems across scales. With patient modeling, it enables patient stratification and target discovery. For agriculture applications, it facilitates breed stratification and genetic optimization.
