Computational Immunology: Applications focuses on different mathematical models, statistical tools, techniques, and computational modelling that helps in understanding complex phenomena of the immune system and its biological functions. The book also focuses on the latest developments in computational biology in designing of drugs, targets, biomarkers for early detection and prognosis of a disease. It highlights the applications of computational methods in deciphering the complex processes of the immune system and its role in health and disease.
- This book discusses the most essential topics, including
- Next generation sequencing (NGS) and computational immunology
- Computational modelling and biology of diseases
- Drug designing
- Computation and identification of biomarkers
- Application in organ transplantation
- Application in disease detection and therapy
- Computational methods and applications in understanding of the invertebrate immune system
