The ultimate goal of the project is to enable design of peptides with predictable functions. The capabilities we develop will be critical in advancing scientific discoveries in biology and other fields.
Robotics have long been used in manufacturing to automate extremely complex processes reliably and rapidly. But those systems were designed to perform specific, repetitive tasks in factories that were built to accommodate robots.
There is an urgent need to develop a data infrastructure comprising autonomous synthesis and characterization platforms that can manage and analyze the heterogeneous datasets that will be produced at massive volumes and rapid rates.
