PROJECT STRATEGY


• Constitution of a venom and venom gland biobank, with the sourcing of more than 500 species of venomous animals

• Peptide sequencing by proteomics and transcriptomics approaches to create a database of 50,000 venom peptides sequences

• High throughput in vitro production of selected peptides to generate a 10,000 peptides bank

• Pharmacological screening of the peptides bank against selected molecular targets and drug lead generation

This strategy represents a new paradigm for venom-based drug discovery, differentiating the VENOMICS approach from the classical bioassay-guided process.
