Use cases > Animal health

We support your veterinary drug and diagnostics discovery and development by leveraging our expertise in bioinformatics, predictive analytics & artificial intelligence, tailored software development, and data governance & architecture. 

Making animal health more data-driven

Having already worked with thousands of data points from both companion and large animals, supported clients in implementing precision livestock best practices, and more, we're your experienced partner for bringing the best, data-driven veterinary therapies and diagnostics to market.

Our solutions



Animal health

Food & agriculture

Biomarker discovery, development, and validation

To support you in de novo discovery and validation of biomarkers, extracting insights from existing datasets, and replicating or validating previous publications, we make use of our harmonized deep biological understanding and hands-on data science skills. This, paired with our industry leading expertise on multi-omics, data mining of public resources, and single cell technologies keeps your animal health research at the cutting edge of the industry.

Target identification and validation

To design streamlined workflows that handle the complexity of your data, we leverage bioinformatics, AI, and effective data governance and architecture. We enhance the efficiency and quality of your analysis process and increase the probability of successful target discovery - helping to de-risk and speed up your therapeutics development process - using our extensive experience in multi-omics analysis, single cell analytics, and more.

In silico screening

We help you to optimize your selection of promising veterinary drug candidates to save you time in the wet lab, using structural modeling, molecule modeling, structure-activity relationships, virtual high-throughput screening, and machine- and deep learning algorithms. By implementing high throughput in silico workflows to screen and score small molecule and biological therapeutic candidates and optimize novel leads, we enhance the efficiency, quality, and probability of success of your veterinary drug discovery pipeline. We can also support you by building in silico libraries for your specific use cases and for in silico compound design or screening for drug repurposing potential. Whether you want to leverage your own in-house data, publicly available data, or a mix of both, we can help you to transform complex biomedical datasets into actionable insights.

Microbiome analysis

Changes in microbial communities can impact animal health or promote disease, and drug-microbiome interactions can impact drug safety and efficacy. In addition, microbiomes represent a vast source for interesting veterinary biomarkers and potential drug targets. We can support you in projects aiming to accurately predict selected outcomes, such as disease development or antimicrobial resistance; establish causal relationships between microbial community composition or dynamics and those outcomes; identify modifiable risk factors for the purpose of drug development; or find novel biomarkers for microbiome-associated diseases. 

Mechanism of action (MoA) studies

Grasping the Mechanism of Action (MoA) of therapeutics is essential for gaining insights into side effects, uncovering opportunities for drug repurposing, and effective subject stratification. However, biology's intricate nature often complicates MoA comprehension. We are your expert partners in achieving enhanced understanding of MoAs by...

  • Integrating multiple layers of omics data such as (epi)genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics,
  • Consolidating in-house data together with publicly available data to further refine target identification and improve accuracy, and
  • Analyzing and interpreting single-cell data to provide high-resolution insights into cellular heterogeneity.

Process automation

We boost the productivity, efficiency, and quality of your veterinary research by leveraging our strong blend of software development and bioinformatics skills. We apply our in-house expertise to develop scalable (bio)informatic pipelines, adhering to top-tier coding practices. In line with the field of precision livestock farming, we have proven expertise in supporting our clients to implement the use of new advanced digital and computing technologies to increase high-quality yields and profitability while lowering requirements for traditional inputs such as land, water, fuel, feed, antimicrobials, and disposables.

Strategic advice for data-driven research

At the strategic phase of your animal health projects, we utilize our combination of life science and data science expertise to determine the most efficient and effective course of action to leverage your data and achieve your goals. We tailor our strategies to align with your specific goals and requirements and make the process of complex biomedical data analysis more manageable and outcome-oriented. BioLizard has proven experience in creating robust systems for capturing and storing data assets, implementing best practices in line with guidelines such as the UN Food and Agriculture Organization’s Global Livestock Environmental Assessment Model, performing unbiased vendor assessments, and more - and we’re ready to help you boost your data capture and data analysis capacities today!


Let's boost your project to a higher level

When you partner with BioLizard, you get state-of-the-art data analysis pipelines and tools to apply to your current and future research projects - and moreover, you receive end-to-end support that will make it faster and easier for you to turn your data into actionable insights.

We also always ensure to fully explain our data science approach to solving your biological challenges - there’s no black box when you work with BioLizard. Our ultimate goal is to empower you through data-driven innovation combined with interactive data exploration, thereby supporting you in extracting actionable insights from your data, and gaining a compelling competitive advantage.
