Allergy involves a series of complex reactions and factors that contribute to the development of the disease and triggering of the symptoms, including rhinitis, asthma, atopic eczema, skin sensitivity, even ac...Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2013 14(Suppl 4):S1
Genome-wide prediction of vaccine targets for human herpes simplex viruses using Vaxign reverse vaccinology
Herpes simplex virus (HSV) types 1 and 2 (HSV-1 and HSV-2) are the most common infectious agents of humans. No safe and effective HSV vaccines have been licensed. Reverse vaccinology is an emerging and revolut...Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2013 14(Suppl 4):S2
Prediction of conformational epitopes with the use of a knowledge-based energy function and geometrically related neighboring residue characteristics
A conformational epitope (CE) in an antigentic protein is composed of amino acid residues that are spatially near each other on the antigen's surface but are separated in sequence; CEs bind their complementary...Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2013 14(Suppl 4):S3
Protein-ligand binding region prediction (PLB-SAVE) based on geometric features and CUDA acceleration
Protein-ligand interactions are key processes in triggering and controlling biological functions within cells. Prediction of protein binding regions on the protein surface assists in understanding the mechanis...Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2013 14(Suppl 4):S4
Norovirus is the major cause of nonbacterial epidemic gastroenteritis, being highly prevalent in both developing and developed countries. Despite of the available monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) for different sub...Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2013 14(Suppl 4):S5
