Cellworks Biosimulation Platform

The Cellworks Biosimulation Platform simulates how a patient's personalized genomic disease model will respond to therapies prior to treatment. The platform is powered by Cellworks groundbreaking Computational Omics Biology Model (CBM), a network of 7,000+ human genes, 30,000+ molecular species and 100+ signaling pathways. As part of the biosimulation process, personalized disease models are created for each patient using their cytogenetic and molecular data as input to the Cellworks CBM. The Cellworks platform analyzes the impact of specific therapies on the patient’s personalized disease model and generates a SingulaTM biosimulation report with Therapy Response Index (TRI) scores from 0 to 100 that predict low to high therapeutic benefit.
