Sequence Search

Getting the right results is in our DNA

Our in-depth Biological Sequence Search is designed to unearth even the most hard-to-find sequences hidden deep within a wide array of patent and non-patent literature, making it ideal for Fortune 500s and world-renowned research labs developing antibodies, primers and therapies including peptides/ nucleic acids.

Algorithm-enabled biological sequence searches that are cost-effective and time-bound

Why Perform Result-Oriented Biological Sequence Search?

  • Get comparative analysis of a newly designed sequence with existing sequences (regions of alignment using BLAST algorithm) that helps in determining if the invention could be an antibody, a GMO, a biomarker, etc.
  • Enable production of artificially engineered/recombinant nucleic acids (DNA, RNA) and proteins (enzymes, hormones, peptides etc.)
  • Before Product launch/scaling up – Performing an FTO Search and evaluate issued patents for using sequences of interest and determine target genes/proteins have been claimed earlier or not.
  • During patent enforceability checks or litigation cases during Infringement, helps in ascertaining that the sequence claimed is known in the prior art or have been developed using the obvious play-around the earlier know sequences.
  • Before licensing/collaborating for an invention
  • During an intermediate or prototype stage of the product
  • Post market-launch competition analysis

Sagacious IPs Biological Sequence Search is beneficial for:

  • R&D companies/research institutes active in new strains, genetically modified foods, drug target discovery, developing antibodies, etc.
  • Universities (Technology Transfer Offices)
  • Individual Inventors
  • Plaintiffs/Defendants in Infringement cases/Law Firms
  • IP Consultants
  • Primary Researchers/Computational Scientists working in Bioinformatics/Dry Lab

Why us?

  • 350+ techno-legal professionals whose skill sets are consistently upgraded by regular trainings as per recommendations on maximising client's profit in product development and launch
  • Access to various paid databases that aid in specialized and supplemental searches (STN, Questel Orbit, Derwent Innovation, STN) with wide coverage and full text from various jurisdictions
  • Seamless communication with timely updates (before, during and after the projects)
  • Easy to read reports providing sequence alignment details along with identity percentage and coverage and also the location of the sequence
  • Maintaining transparency by sharing the search transcripts so the costs can be easily interpreted
  • Flexible in using client’s subscription for conducting the searches
  • In-house scripts (in R/ MATLAB) that help us group and filter results obtained from databases like STN, PatSeq Finder.
  • Market and jurisdiction-based recommendations
  • Potential risk assessments
  • Adherence to timelines
  • Delivery of expedited searches
  • Search customization

Impact Story

A start-up functional in CleanTech initiated a vertical in Biological Waste Management using microorganisms. Their initial R&D required access to diverse nucleic acids and amino-acids sequences from both bacterial and fungal sources. They approached Sagacious IP with a unique requirement that involved searching freely available amino acid sequences specific to an enzymatic pathway that converts industrial waste to reusable products. Sagacious IP performed an in-depth search to identify such sequences, using various search models (queries modelled around mega protein BLAST) on several databases. The search results helped client to zero in the most favourable and easily available sequences to design their processes. They subsequently commercialized their technology to one of the front-runners in the market.
