Shiru's discovery platform integrates computational predictions with high throughput characterizations to build a catalog of functional food proteins.
Using protein sequence representations, we can model the evolutionary diversity of proteins to look for others across different species that serve similar target functions.
Food science has not fully leveraged technological solutions as much as the biopharma and health care industries. We can use many of the same approaches in diagnosing and treating diseases towards discovering functional plant proteins.
Additionally, we use state of the art bioinformatics tools and methods to investigate protein sequence, structure, and function relationships to help us better understand what makes a plant protein an ideal food ingredient.
We have developed novel biochemical and functional assays that can measure the food specific properties of proteins at a scale never done before.
