Evaluation of Approaches to Identify the Targets of Cellular Immunity on a Proteome-Wide Scale

Fernanda C. Cardoso, Joanne S. Roddick, Penny Groves, Denise L. Doolan, Vasee Moorthy
2011 PLoS ONE  
Herein, we report a novel approach for proteome-wide scale identification of the antigenic targets of T cell responses using IVTT products.  ...  The recent elucidation of the genome, proteome and transcriptome of many of these complex pathogens provides the basis for rational vaccine design by identifying, on a proteome-wide scale, novel target  ...  This is a favorable scenario for proteomic-wide scale cellular screening, as the use of highly diluted IVTT products is more cost-effective.  ...

Towards a Software Engineering Approach to Multi-Scale Modeling and Simulation

M. Maouche, M. Bettaz
