Structura Biotechnology Inc. develops machine-learning algorithms that discover protein structures to enable rational drug design. Rational drug design relies on information about the 3D structure of a target protein in order to identify the likely function(s) of the protein and the corresponding ideal drug candidate(s). Structura Biotechnology Inc.’s proprietary machine-learning algorithms are bundled into our CryoSPARC software and are applied to reconstruct the 3D structure of target proteins from millions of 2D microscope images obtained using electron cryomicroscopy (cryo-EM). Our technology is orders of magnitude faster and most robust than existing cryo-EM reconstruction methods.
Structura Biotechnology Inc. is a software company that builds advanced high-performance algorithms using modern machine learning to push forward the state of the art in 3D atomic structure discovery of proteins, complexes, viruses, and other biomolecules.
