Abstract:
This work set out to apply computational tools and biophysics principles to develop a systematic approach to the rational selection of synthetic antigens from appropriate DNA sequences. The wider potential to the rapid development of diagnostics will be demonstrated by application towards a chlamydia-specific immunodiagnostic, and the potential for vaccine and therapeutic development will be discussed.
