Horizon powers genomic research and translational medicine from sequence to treatment.

Horizon Discovery is a UK Biotechnology company founded in 2007, and built upon a 20 year heritage in oncology research, translational medicine and gene-editing.  The company’s unique history and experience has culminated in a precision gene-editing platform that incorporates rAAV, CRISPR and ZFN technologies.  Horizon is the only company that has access to such a broad range of tools, allowing any genome modification challenge to be addressed.

In total, Horizon offers over 16,000 products, almost all of which are based on the application of gene editing to generate cell lines that accurately model the disease-causing mutations found in genetically based diseases. These ‘patients-in-a-test-tube’ are being used by customers to identify the effect of individual or compound genetic mutations on drug activity, patient responsiveness, and resistance, which may lead to the successful prediction of which patient sub-groups will respond to currently available and future drug treatments.

In addition, Horizon provides custom cell line and in vivo model generation services for research and bioproduction applications, quantitative molecular reference standards, in vivo disease models, and contract research and custom screening services.

Horizon aspires to provide science-driven research solutions that lead to advancement in the understanding of the genetic basis of disease and better healthcare outcomes for patients, ultimately providing the tools to identify the ‘right drugs’ for the ‘right patients’ based upon the unique genetic mutations that define their disease.

Human Isogenic Cellular disease models (X-MAN)

Human Isogenic Cellular disease models (X-MAN)

Panel of ‘off-the-shelf’ isogenic cell-lines that model common genes that occur in human cancer, plus provide their perfectly matched normal genetic backgrounds as a reference.

Precision Genome editing

Using its precision gene-editing platform that incorporates rAAV, CRISPR and ZFN technologies, Horizon is able to alter any endogenous gene sequence of a human or mammalian cell line quickly, reliably and without introducing unwanted and confounding genotypes and/or phenotypes.
