VLife to develop Advanced Technology for NCBS, Bengaluru, Stanford University and Technical University of Denmark
Pune, Maharashtra, India

VLife Sciences Technologies Pvt. Ltd. (VLife), a leading provider of technologies for computer aided drug and molecular discovery based in Pune, India, today announced signing of a contract with National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS), Bengaluru, for developing a specialized modeling and simulation technology in the area of protein-protein interactions that would aid cutting edge research in computational molecular discovery. The project is undertaken jointly by NCBS, Stanford University and Technical University of Denmark.

This project involves studying coiled coil interactions in proteins which will provide opportunity to encounter and study hitherto uncharacterized myosins, key players in the dynamic organization of cellular components. With this project, VLife has reinforced its ability to execute highly sophisticated scientific computational work, which has made it a partner of choice of prestigious institutes across the world.

Professor R. Sowdhamini, NCBS, Bengaluru, Principal Investigator and NCBS collaborator for this work, Professor J. Spudich, Department of Biochemistry at Stanford University and Professor H. Flyvbjerg , Department of Micro- and Nanotechnology at Technical University of Denmark shared similar thoughts when they stated that this collaboration will leverage VLife's core strengths in modeling and simulation technology development to provide a platform for studying and understanding some critical aspects of protein-protein interactions.

Supreet Deshpande, Director, VLife Sciences Technologies Pvt. Ltd., said, "We are very pleased to be part of this collaboration involving highly reputed research institutes which rank among the best in the world and for the opportunity to work with some of the leading scientific minds. We are confident that this collaboration will result in an easy to use computational software solution which provides deeper insights into the complex domain of protein-protein interactions."
