Human Genome Sciences Incorporated Company Profile

21:11 EST 19th November 2017 | BioPortfolio

Human Genome Sciences, Inc. is engaged in the research and development of novel, proprietary pharmaceutical and diagnostic products based on the discovery and understanding of the medical utility of genes. Using automated, high-throughput gene sequencing technology, the Company has generated a very large collection of partial human gene sequences, which the Company believes correspond to most of the expressed genes in the human body, and now possesses one of the largest proprietary databases of full length human and microbial genes. Based on this genomic database, the Company has created a broad base of product opportunities. The Company's activities have progressedfrom a focus on the identification and cataloging of genes to focusing primarily on research and development of therapeutic protein product candidates. In its efforts to identify the most promising product candidates, the Company uses its

advanced proprietary bioinformatics system to analyze partial and full length gene sequences and to identify the genes corresponding to such gene sequences and the proteins encoded by such genes.
