Publication: Druggable and biopharmable genome annotation pipeline development

The identification of proteins which could be potential targets for new pharmaceutical products is invaluable for the continued improvement people’s quality of life and expansion of available treatment options. In order to aid the discovery of new drug targets, predictions of every human gene likely to be exploitable by compounds and biotechnology were generated using open source tools and publicly available data. An automated pipeline was produced in order to minimise the effort required to reproduce, update and expand this work.
