Biomarker discovery
for drugs & diagnostics
In silico insight across the drug development lifecycle
kinase cascade
Drug Targets
Isolate pathways that drive disease outcomes (e.g. metastatic, survival) and their subtypes (e.g. inflammatory, inhibitory)
Therapeutic (Tx)
Prognostic (Px)
immune checkpoint drug
Drug Response
Identify biomarkers that influence treatment safety (e.g. adverse effects, toxicity) and efficacy (e.g. survival, vasculature)
Companion Diagnostic (CDx)
Once KeyBio's algorithm has learned the critical biomarkers, it serves as a medical test that matches patients to clinical trials and/or drugs based on their genomic profile
Despite an average R&D cost of $793M, 90% of cancer drugs fail during clinical trial. Are fundamental biomarkers being overlooked?
ASCO 2023: discovery of untapped biomarkers of cancer survival
Study of bladder cancer survival biomarkers
  • Analysis antithetically highlights germline genomics over tumor multi-omics
  • Neural network predicts 5-year overall survival (OS) at 95% accuracy, and ranks the most influential survival biomarkers
Accelerate preclinical development with in silico insights

Biology is interactive – computational biology should be too
Association Studies are Univariate
Correlate each mutation with the health outcome one-by-one. Lack of interaction means a separate hypothesis for each mutation. No patient-specific predictions, only population-wide statistics.
gwas simplicity
neural network topology
Neural Networks are Multivariate
Genes interact with each other, as they would in biology, within a unified algorithm. Predict patient-specific health outcomes. Prioritize population-wide biomarkers via permutation.
