Reinventing Drug Discovery: The Power of Synthetic Biology and ‘Informatics as a Service’

by L7 Informatics | posted on January 05, 2024

In the ever-evolving landscape of life sciences, staying at the forefront of innovation is not just an aspiration but a necessity. The quest for breakthroughs and the drive to optimize drug discovery processes have led to a groundbreaking collaboration that promises to reshape the industry. This is the story of Think Bioscience, Boulder BioConsulting, and L7 Informatics – a successful alliance that’s streamlining, automating, and optimizing operations to accelerate biosynthetic drug discovery.


The Bold Vision of Think Bioscience

Think Bioscience isn’t your typical biotech company. It’s a trailblazer in biosynthetic drug discovery. Their mission? To develop small-molecule therapeutics against elusive targets

Joel Kralj, Director of Platform Innovation at Think Bioscience, explains their ingenious approach that fuses elements from classical pharmaceutical pipelines with the concept of natural selection. The result? The repurpose of synthetic biology by using living systems to guide the design and assembly of better medicines.


Informatics as a Catalyst

In this journey of innovation, Think Bioscience needed a partner that understood the intricate needs of a small and medium-sized pharma and biotech company. That’s where Boulder BioConsulting comes into play. Dan Weaver, Founder and President at Boulder BioConsulting, brings the concept of “Informatics as a Service” to the table. The idea is simple yet game-changing: an integrated approach to informatics support.

Boulder BioConsulting’s collaboration with Think Bioscience has produced an informatics ecosystem that powers this engine of innovation. They’ve designed custom NGS pipelines to analyze the colossal amount of data generated by Think Bioscience’s synthetic organisms. The result? A complete spectrum of support, including software tools, application assistance, data management, and data analysis.


The L7 Informatics Connection

One pivotal piece in the informatics puzzle is the L7 Informatics fully digitalized platform, L7|ESP™. Think Bioscience chose the L7|ESP LIMS App for their Laboratory Information Management System. It’s an efficient, streamlined solution that plays a significant role in managing and processing data. Its seamless integration of software tools and informatics capabilities becomes the lifeblood that sustains this new era of drug discovery. 


The Future of Drug Discovery

This successful partnership of Think Bioscience, Boulder BioConsulting, and L7 Informatics shines as a beacon of inspiration and a testament to what’s possible when innovation, creative problem-solving, and collaboration converge.

This collaboration promises to reshape the drug discovery landscape, making it more efficient, data-driven, and groundbreaking than ever before. We hope this story has inspired you, challenged you, and ignited your imagination. If you’d like to watch the full webinar, please follow this link.
