GenScript Singapore Hosts Open Day Showcasing Cutting-Edge AI Advancements in Recombinant Protein Production and Drug Discovery

Wednesday, April 24, 2024

GenScript, a prominent player in the field of life sciences and biotechnology, recently hosted an Open Day event at its facility in Singapore on April 16th. The event attracted more than 50 representatives from Singapore, offering them an exclusive opportunity to explore GenScript's advanced gene and protein production facility. The focus was on showcasing the company's advancements in AI-driven gene and recombinant protein production, demonstrating how AI technology enhances production efficiency.

One of the highlights of the event was the introduction of GenScript's latest AI innovations. Among them is GenSmart™ Codon Optimization (Patent Number: WO2020024917A1), an online tool designed to improve gene sequence design for better expression in both prokaryotic and mammalian systems. It covers over 50 host organisms and employs a unique algorithm inspired by Population Immune Algorithm, analyzing over 200 gene expression factors. This tool customizes gene optimization to increase the likelihood of producing functional proteins, delivering yields up to 10 times higher compared to similar tools.

GenScript is also developing other AI-driven tools, such as the enzyme engineering platform - Al-deZyme, and the antibody AI platform. These tools aim to accelerate enzyme evolution and facilitate antibody development and optimization, respectively. The integration of artificial intelligence reflects GenScript's commitment to providing efficient services to the life science community, particularly in recombinant antibody expression and drug discovery.

Dr. Janice Jin, President of GenScript Asia Pacific, expressed enthusiasm about the future of biotechnology, emphasizing the transformative potential of AI in therapeutic antibody development and drug discovery. The success of the Open Day signifies the beginning of collaborative ventures that will further drive innovation in the life sciences, with GenScript leading the way in leveraging AI for progress in drug discovery and beyond.
