Success and Challenges in AI-Driven Antibody Discovery– From Humanoid Antibodies to de novo Design
Machine learning has become an integral part of antibody discovery and development. I will describe how we designed the J.HAL antibody discovery library with a generative machine learning method and share experimental results from recent discovery campaigns. I will also outline our computational approach to the problem of antigen-specific antibody design, provide in silico validation of the approach, and describe our plans for experimental validation.
