Idea Name: Molybdenum Cofactor
Slogan: life demands to be lived
Startup Domain: Healthcare
Abstract:
    Molybdenum cofactor deficiency is metabolic disorder characterized by rapidly progressive neurologic damage leading to combined deficiency of molybdoenzymes. Their deficiency leads to death.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Molybdenum cofactor deficiency (MoCD) is a rare disease. about 100 cases are known However, neurological disorders are rapidly progressing so it might be under represented data.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Basically health department is major area of application where patients with several neurological disorders can be treated for MoCD.
How will the solution works
    In-silico analysis on active sites of molybdenum enzymes involved in biosynthesis of cPMP (cyclic pyranopterin monophophate) from guanosine triphosphate (GTP).
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    we are doing computational analysis and then we will go for lab experiment which is both time and cost effective.
