Aureus Licenses Database to Bayer CropScience

    "The addition of an agroscience company like Bayer CropScience confirms that AurSCOPE is becoming a general solution for knowledge driven discovery,” comments Jason Theodosiou, CEO of Aureus. “Access to knowledge databases will allow the agroscience industry to use prior knowledge from pharmaceutical drug targets to guide programs in the crop science industry as well"

While these protein families are linked with a number of human disease areas, they are also important targets in the agroscience industry for fungicide and insecticide development.
