Excelra, a global data science and data analytics company, today announced its collaboration with Standigm Inc., a company using artificial intelligence (AI) technology for drug discovery and development.

Under the agreement Excelra will provide its small molecule medicinal chemistry intelligence platform GOSTAR® to Standigm Inc.. GOSTAR® provides comprehensive information encompassing over 8 million compounds, manually curated from 3 million patents and 200,000 journal articles. The database contains over 28 million SAR associated data points. The well-structured relational database can be utilised for diverse applications across different stages of the drug discovery and development lifecycle and aids in target validation, hit Identification, early lead Identification and optimization.

Hanjo Kim, Platform Team Leader, Standigm Inc., said: “For an AI-based drug discovery company, high quality SAR data is of great importance. Our platform technologies, Standigm BESTTM, Standigm ASKTM, and Standigm InsightTM integrate lots of data to generate innovative ideas including finding novel targets, developing predictive models, and designing novel lead series compounds. I expect GOSTAR® can help this process.” Raveendra Dayam, Director Chemistry Services, Excelra said: “GOSTAR® is the largest source for experimentally determined interactions of millions of small molecules with most of the potential drug targets. The platform provides a comprehensive overview of millions of compounds, linking chemical structure to biological, pharmacological and therapeutic activities.  These datasets are core to the AI/ML driven drug discovery programs that support rapid discovery of novel drug candidates.”
