Applications Broaden for Epitope Mapping
Basic Tool Has Copious Uses in Development of Vaccines and Protein Therapeutics

(From Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News)

Epitope mapping, initially a basic-science tool for understanding the 3-D interactions between antigens and antibodies, is now being extensively employed to develop new therapeutics. In vaccine technology, especially, scientists in academia and biotech firms have mobilized epitope discovery based on the use of high-throughput antibody screening for rational vaccine design.
