Highland Park, NJ (PRWEB) January 21, 2009 -- Nexomics Biosciences Inc., a recently-formed, New Jersey-based biotechnology company, applies cutting edge platform technologies based on large scale protein production, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), and X-ray crystallography for use in drug discovery efforts. The company provides customers with services in bioinformatics, protein production and structural biology for lead discovery, optimization and development programs. In addition, Nexomics Biosciences will also pursue in-house drug discovery projects on proprietary targets to identify novel small molecule therapeutics.

Nexomics Biosciences has signed a comprehensive license agreement with Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, that provides Nexomics rights to a portfolio of intellectual property, including a suite of bioinformatics software and an early stage antibiotic screening methodology. In addition, the agreement gives Nexomics rights to use and further develop a novel ribosomal RNA methyltransferase assay for identifying specific binding and inhibition of R1mA proteins from bacterial species. The invention has applications in control of bacterial gene expression, control of bacterial growth, antibacterial chemistry, and antibacterial therapy.

An additional agreement has been announced with the Center for Advanced Biotechnology and Medicine (CABM), a research and teaching center that provides Nexomics access to laboratory space and equipment. Under the service agreement, Nexomics Biosciences will have access to a number of scientific facilities supporting molecular biology, fermentation, protein purification, and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR).

"Together with Prof. Gaetano Monteleone and co-founder Dr. Michael Baran, Rutgers is very excited to create Nexomics as a tool for commercializing promising technologies out of Prof. Monteleone's lab" said Dr. Michael Pazzani, Rutgers' V.P. of Research and Graduate and Professional Education. Dr. Pazzani further added "The unique and highly-regarded expertise of Nexomics' founders, as well as the company's strategy of providing drug discovery services to biotech and pharma companies while developing its own IP and drug candidates, bode well for a successful commercial effort."
