SilicoLife Lda

SilicoLife is a company with a strong experience in the integration of new high-throughput experimental omics data with genome scale models and in the use of network-based methods to reveal network hotspots, key physiologically relevant molecules or sub-networks linked to a specific condition or state, which can be used as disease biomarkers or possible drug targets. It benefits from the expertise and international recognition of its founding team in the fields of Bioinformatics and Systems Biology with several published works in mathematical and computational methods for modeling, simulation and optimization of microbial strains.

SilicoLife has its headquarters in Spinpark, a tech incubator located in Avepark, a science and technology park in the North of Portugal.
