Trana Discovery provides a proprietary drug discovery technology platform that enables its partners to discover new treatments of bacterial, viral, and fungal infectious diseases. Our assays screen compounds to identify potential drug candidates that work through a novel mechanism of action: inhibition of the target pathogen(s) ability to use an organism-specific transfer RNA (tRNA), essential for propagation.
There is an issue for the world’s food supply. Multi-resistant microorganisms are now causing disease in Wheat rust, Asian Soybean rust, HLB disease in citrus crops and most recently the recurrence of resistant Panama disease in bananas. These all can have a major impact on the world’s food supply. Fungi and bacteria are becoming resistant to traditional pesticides therefore there is an urgent need for new fungicides and anti-bacterial agents.
