For centuries, the hieroglyphs on ancient Egyptian temples remained indecipherable until the discovery of the Rosetta Stone in 1799. A decree carved on a granite-like stele written in three languages: Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics, Ancient Egyptian demotic, and Ancient Greek. A 1,680 pound cipher key, the Rosetta Stone along with techniques associated to epigraphy, enabled deciphering of the Ancient Egyptian languages, providing access to a vast trove of hidden knowledge.
This cipher key was critical to deciphering hidden relationships in what was thought a lost language. But imagine a cipher key that uses inputs to detect relationships within a specific set of data: a customizable tool that identifies hidden correlations in the immense library of scientific research that multiplies exponentially daily.
Vector Space Biosciences exists to solve a series of related problems in space exploration which cannot flourish until the damaging effects of stressors, including microgravity and radiation, on the human body can be protected and repaired. Utilizing our scientific data engineering pipelines powered by ensembled language models, developed over twenty-plus years, our proven methodology transforms the massive volume of new and existing research into real-time, visualized, correlation matrix datasets, detecting hidden relationships that can be applied to any area or aspect of bioscience research, resulting in the acceleration of new insights, hypotheses, interpretations and novel discoveries.
Partners and collaborators
Over the years
The Bissell Lab at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL/DOE) was commissioned by NASA to write a report on how to protect the human body for a planned mission to Mars.
2002 forward, our team was invited to work at Lawrence Berkeley Lab's Biosciences division (formerly Life Sciences division) in collaboration with Mina J. Bissell’s lab and the NASA Ames Intelligent Systems Division’s AutoClass group. Our work was related to genes involved in extending the lifespan of nematodes (Blei DM, Franks K, Jordan MI, Mian IS), chromosomal radiation damage and DNA repair pathways in the context of space radiation. The work was supported under U.S. Department of Energy under Contract No. DE-AC02-05CH11231
