AMPLY can process publicly available digital biological data. But it can also process unique data collected at remote sites.
Members of the AMPLY team travelled to the Peruvian jungle to recover skin and liver transcriptomes of a series of frogs captured in the rainforest. Our focus was to analyse these data with AMPLY and recover novel compounds from them.
As part of this analysis AMPLY demonstrated it’s “region locating” functionality to synthesise regions from a series of target small proteins and peptides for extensive lab testing. Many of the resulting compounds from this study have unique properties: both antibacterial and antifungal with unique protective capabilities including a possible treatment option for a global threat to amphibian populations.
