Rationally designed viruses for use as vaccines or solid tumor therapies
Codagenix is a clinical stage synthetic biology company that uses software to recode the genomes of viruses, constructing safe and efficacious, live-attenuated vaccines or viruses to prevent viral infections or treat solid tumors. Codagenix’s recoded vaccine candidates are a perfect antigenic match to the the target virus and induce a robust immune response to all viral antigens.
