Dart Neuroscience (DNS) is a pharmaceutical company that focuses on developing treatments for memory disorders. The goal of the clinic project was to build biological networks based on DNS experimental data and to create accompanying network analysis tools. The networks and tools will help DNS better understand memory processes and find drug targets, with the goal of improving long term memory.
