By The Science Advisory Board staff writers

July 9, 2020 -- Twist Bioscience and Takeda Pharmaceutical have formed a partnership for access to Twist's proprietary phage display libraries for the discovery of antibodies in Takeda's biologics pipeline.

Under the agreement, Twist Biopharma will license Takeda its "Library of Libraries," a panel of synthetic antibody phage display libraries derived from human genetic sequences. Together, the companies will work to discover, validate, and optimize new antibody candidates for applications in oncology, rare diseases, neuroscience, and gastroenterology. Takeda will pay Twist annual technology licensing fees, as well as milestone payments and royalties for all compounds discovered from using Twist's phage display libraries.
