Immunoinformatics: Bioinformatic Strategies for Better Understanding of Immune Function

The astounding diversity of the immune system and the complexity of its regulatory pathways makes immunology a combinatorial science

2004

Scholarcy highlights

  • The astounding diversity of the immune system and the complexity of its regulatory pathways makes immunology a combinatorial science
  • Computational analysis has become an essential element of immunology research and this has led to the creation of the emerging field of immunoinformatics
  • Immunoinformatics facilitates the understanding of immune function by modelling the interactions among immunological components
  • Combining the two fields increases the efficiency of biological research and offers the potential for major advances in the study of biological systems
  • The purpose of this book, is to present contributions from a multidisciplinary team of biologists and computer scientists to explore the issues related to better understanding of immune function and, in particular, to help apply new computer science methods to immunological research
  • The Novartis Foundation is an international scientific and educational charity which promotes the study and general knowledge of science and in particular encourages international co-operation in scientific research
