Immunology data analysis software tools
Computational immunology, or immunoinformatics is a field at the crossroad of genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics and immunology that involves the application of computational methods to immunological problems. Prediction of B- and T-cell epitopes has long been the focus of immunoinformatics. With the advent of next-generation sequencing methods, an unprecedented wealth of information has become available that requires more-advanced immunoinformatics tools for collection, analysis, and interpretation of data. Immunoinformatics software tools now have applications in allergies, infectious diseases, immune system function, vaccine design and cancer.
