Bioinformatics Solutions Inc. (BSI) was recently acknowledged in Scientific Reports for the development of a novel algorithm, ALPS. This algorithm is specifically designed and implemented for automatically sequencing monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) using LC-MS/MS data. The featured article in Scientific Report is entitled Complete De Novo Assembly of Monoclonal Antibody Sequences. Since the submission of the manuscript in April 2016, ALPS has already been improved significantly and integrated into our PEAKS AB Software.
The process of sequencing mAbs is a crucial early step in drug development. The automated process significantly decreases research time, without sacrificing accuracy, resulting in deeper analysis and faster “time to market” production for pharmaceutical companies.
