The Life Science industry is facing the challenge of managing the exponential increase in volume, diversity and complexity of available data generated by automated high-throughput technologies as well as the product development alternatives available. DNA Sequence


LION  is dedicated to improving the research productivity of the life science industry. We accomplish this by providing IT solutions that address the major challenges in the research process, enabling organizations to make better decisions about their research projects and their entire portfolio.

Life Science Informatics (LSI™)

LION’s Life Science Informatics (LSI™) business focuses on developing and implementing innovative integration solutions that significantly improve productivity and performance in life science research and development. LION’s comprehensive approach to data integration enables researchers to simultaneously compare and analyze data across various phases of the discovery process. This enterprise-wide aggregation of information allows researchers to make better decisions more quickly. Research time and costs are reduced, as scientists are able to identify and focus on the most promising drug candidates earlier in the R&D process. LION’s team of scientific and IT experts combine their domain expertise to develop performance software solutions best suited to life science research.

At the heart of LION’s offering is the LION DiscoveryCenter™, a powerful integration platform that provides a single point of access to drug discovery data, applications and related documents in a user-friendly desktop interface. Based on SRS, LION DiscoveryCenter™ is a scalable drug discovery decision platform. It seamlessly links all biological, chemical and pre-clinical data, providing a collaborative knowledge platform from which all discovery activities can be managed. LION DiscoveryCenter™ is able to handle large, complex datasets from both flat file and relational sources to save time and increase productivity and creativity.

LION DiscoveryCenter™  is a modular platform upon which LION has built application components. LION’s Target Engine™ is a comprehensive biology solution for accelerating the target identification and validation through a wide variety of data mining, visualization and interpretation functionality. LION Target Engine™ seamlessly integrates biological data from different data sources. Much of the functionality has been developed within LION’s own in-house drug discovery activities.

LION Lead Engine™ is another application component that provides a comprehensive chemistry solution for lead identification and optimization as well as preclinical testing and analysis. The LION Lead Engine™ provides the ability to identify leads faster, while allowing researchers to optimize leads of higher quality more quickly.
