Immunoinformatics Summary

Immunoinformatics by Rajat K. De

At the intersection of experimental and computational sciences, the second edition of Immunoinformatics provides biological insights as well as a simpler way to implement approaches and algorithms in the immunoinformatics research domain. After an introductory section, this extensive volume moves on to cover topics such as databases, tools for prediction, systems biology approaches, as well as a variety of immunoinformatics applications. As part of the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series, chapters include the type of detailed information and implementation advice to ensure successful results.

Comprehensive and practical, Immunoinformatics, Second Edition aims at students and researchers from diverse backgrounds and levels interested in working with immunological problems.
