Shown below is an executive summary of In Silico Genesis.

In Silico Genesis was founded in early 2011, primarily based on the work carried out in the Laboratory of Molecular Biophysics and the Structural Bioinformatics and Computational Biochemistry Unit, the Department of Biochemistry of the University of Oxford. The Medical Research Council provided the funding for the research and training undertaken, via MRC special training fellowship in Bioinformatics/Neuroinformatics/Health-Informatics, under a project title “Ion channels and their regulatory interactions – a bioinformatics approach”.

In Silico Genesis does a target-driven translation for developing genomic medicine and companion diagnostics. The company has three portfolios in the production line at present, which has been made possible via in kind support provided by the Oxford Supercomputing Centre in the Oxford e Research Centre of the University of Oxford. In Silico Genesis has a target identified for three existing antimalarials in the market (malaria companion diagnostics), an antiviral combination therapy consisting of oligonucleotides and a repurposed drug for influenza A virus (biohazard level 2) and Crimean Congo Haemorrhagic Fever virus (biohazard level 4), and a three-component Alzheimer’s therapy aided by a viral vector for delivery in the brain. The company operates in partnership with the Public Health England for our virus programme and is collaborating with Pharmacology, the University of Oxford for one of our Alzheimer’s projects.

Specialties: Medical genomics, bioinformatics, medical statistics and biochemistry
