The Pistoia Alliance AbVance Project hits a key milestone

Friday, November 10, 2017

The Pistoia Alliance, a global, not for profit alliance that works to lower barriers to innovation in life sciences R&D, has announced that its project to increase knowledge of antibody (Ab) structures has reached its first major milestone—12 antibody structures have been deposited into the European Bioinformatics Institute’s (EMBL-EBI) Protein Data Bank (PDB). The goals of the project are to generate novel Ab structures and improve Ab structural data sharing across the life sciences. This will increase researchers’ predictive power and their ability to accurately model Ab structures; considerably reducing the time and cost associated with generating experimental data to support decision-making in drug projects.
