Principles of complex assembly in cells revealed – assisted by ComplexINC technologies.

Our cells contain many proteins which catalyze biological activity. In the post-genomic area, it became increasingly clear that proteins do not act on their own. Rather, they assemble into large multicomponent assemblies that contain 10 or more individual subunits. This complexity is key to biology. For example, the machinery that reads out our genes is composed of more than 100 proteins in...

ComplexLink™ technology catalyzes influenza R&D

Influenza, commonly known as ‘flu’, is a seasonal infectious disease which many of us encounter every year. Typical symptoms include a running nose, the occasional cough, and elevated temperature. However, by altering its genetic material, the virus that causes influenza can rapidly evolve into a deadly killer, which has historically given unpredictable rise to millions of deaths and massive...
