More and more biological data is being collected every day, but techniques to analyze and organize this data have not kept pace. Based on a proprietary computational platform, Mimetics’ can find hidden patterns in complex, time series biological data that cannot otherwise be observed.
The unique analytical power of the Mimetics platform has already been used to identify previously unobserved stress responses in commercial fermentations, to uncover the regulation of the production of secondary metabolites in micro-organisms and to study the effects of abiotic stress on plant circadian patterns and metabolism.
Mimetics works with companies and researchers in BioTech, AgBio and Human Health and Pharmaceuticals to show how they can obtain higher resolution views of the processes that go on in the biological organisms they work with.
How do Mimetics’ capabilities differ from other bio-computation approaches? The world has become familiar with the term ‘Genomics’ which covers powerful techniques for understanding the full suite of genes and their evolution. Other terms like ‘Proteomics’ and ‘Metabolomics’ and ‘Transcriptomics’ have been coined to describe the molecular interactions in cells. Mimetics’ approach differs from all of these in the same way that a movie differs from a snapshot or a series of photographs. Mimetics bio-computation platform develops models of the transcriptional processes in which molecules interact and regulate the way in which genes are expressed and function. This approach requires a combination of powerful mathematics with a deep understanding of the biology involved. This is Mimetics’ unique strength!
