Review quote

"Investigators considering problems of recombinant vaccine design, possible host responses, and how to select likely sites from a large pool of information (the protein of interest) will find valuable material here." -Doody's Book Review, Weighted Numerical Score:77 - 3 Stars "...a value to virtually any investigator in this general field." -Doody's Book Review, Weighted Numerical Score:77 - 3 Stars "...a valuable addition to libraries in universities and research institutes, R & D firms engaged in the development of vaccines and immunotherapeutics, and clinical research centres." -Immunology newsshow more

Table of contents

Immunogenicity: Predicting Immunogenicity in silico [NOTE: As these papers describe computational methods, NONE are in the strict MiMB format, though most approximate it. This I have discussed with John Walker, and he indicates that this is acceptable. I indicate below those papers which do not even have a MiMB-like format.] 0. Preface [THIS IS NOT IN MiMB FORMAT] 1. Immunoinformatics and the in silico prediction of Immunogenicity: An introduction. Darren R Flower [THIS IS NOT IN MiMB FORMAT] Section 1: Databases 2.
