Computational immunology

Computational immunology

In academia, computational immunology is a field of science that encompasses high-throughput genomic and bioinformatics approaches to immunology. The field's main aim is to convert immunological data into computational problems, solve these problems using mathematical and computational approaches and then convert these results into immunologically meaningful interpretations.

The explosive growth of bioinformatics techniques and applications in the post-genomics era has radically transformed immunology research. This has led to a comparable growth in the field of computation immunology, or immunoinformatics.
