Webinar March 5: Discover New Biology Using VERG

Date/Time: March 5, 2019 • 9am PDT | 12pm EDT

Learn about VERG, a novel high-throughput cell platform for characterizing genes and proteins of interest. VERG enables organisations to rapidly understand the effects of coding variations on their genes/proteins of interest as it relates to biology, drug development and synthetic biology. Helping to power VERG is VariantFind™, a patent pending technology for building DNA variant libraries. VariantFind’s three-step (design, build and validate) workflow helps organizations build scanning and combinatorial libraries in a powerful and flexible manner.

The webinar features VERG experts from Ranomics, an innovative biotechnology company that helps organizations enable transformative discoveries using genomics.

Join this webinar to learn about:

  • How exploiting genetic variations can help you build and engineer better life sciences products
  • How to find genetic variations, for example, that are in proximity to exon-intron junctions, therefore having a high chance of perturbing gene function, and which could result in disease causation.
  • How VERG technology can help you measure binding interactions across thousands of protein variants in a single workflow.
  • …and more.
