Vaccines Meet Big Data: State of the Art and Future Prospects. From the Classical 3Is (“Isolate–Inactivate–Inject”) Vaccinology 1.0 to Vaccinology 3.0, Vaccinomics, and Beyond: A Historical Overview

PMCID: 5845111
PMID: 29556492
DOI: 10.3389/fpubh.2018.00062

[…] to aid and assist researchers in vaccine discovery and design (, ). Databases of vaccine candidates, such as MalVac (), or Vaxar (), software tools such as Vaxjo (), VIOLIN (–), NERVE (), Vaxign (), Vacceed (), Jenner-predict server (), EpiToolKit (), iVax (), or VaxiJen (), have been specifically implemented for vaccinology to enable prediction of vaccine antigens or adjuvants.A successful examp […]


The genome of the protozoan parasite Cystoisospora suis and a reverse vaccinology approach to identify vaccine candidates☆

PMCID: 5354109
PMID: 28161402
DOI: 10.1016/j.ijpara.2016.11.007

[…] Initially, 403 protein sequences containing unknown amino acids (‘X’) were filtered out. The software Vacceed () was used to identify potential immunogenic proteins. Vacceed implements a machine learning approach that combines independent sources of evidence for immunogenic features computed by differ […]


Cloning, expression and molecular characterization of a Cystoisospora suis specific uncharacterized merozoite protein

PMCID: 5297187
PMID: 28173829
DOI: 10.1186/s13071-017-2003-1

[…] te a rich reservoir for species-specific antigens and thus putative targets for immune-intervention. In line with this trend, previous screening of the predicted proteome of C. suis with the software Vacceed revealed numerous potential vaccine candidates with no annotated function []. Among these, CSUI_005805, which encodes for an uncharacterized protein, appeared to be an attractive candidate owi […]


Vaccination against parasites – status quo and the way forward

PMCID: 5382507
PMID: 28405456
DOI: 10.1186/s40813-016-0047-9

[…] s (Palmieri, submitted). For C. suis a genome size of 83 Megabases encoding >8300 genes is estimated, and a recently developed pipeline for the search of vaccine candidates in apicomplexan parasites (Vacceed; []) has detected 562 candidates in C. suis which now need to be evaluated further in silico, in vitro (using a cell culture system supporting the complete life cycle of C. suis; []) and in vi […]


Structural and Computational Biology in the Design of Immunogenic Vaccine Antigens

J Immunol Res
PMCID: 4615220
PMID: 26526043
DOI: 10.1155/2015/156241

[…] HC I and MHC II epitope prediction. Jenner-Predict, while using some of the same filtering criteria as NERVE and Vaxign, put more weight on the known host-pathogen interaction domains on proteins []. Vacceed framework extended the vaccine antigen prediction also to eukaryotes [], which are typically much more challenging targets due to their complexity compared to prokaryotes. Also approaches base […]
