Repurposing Drugs for Covid-19

Algen Biotechnologies, a venture-backed platform therapeutics company from the Illumina Accelerator, has created a rapid CRISPR-based screening platform to identify repurposed drugs for COVID-19. This is based on a screening platform for infectious diseases caused by RNA viruses (such as COVID-19). The use case for the technology includes repurposing existing drugs on the market, as well as identifying novel therapeutics.
