IMTECH in collaboration with bioinformatics company BioMantra, launched an immunoinformatics software tool ‘VaxiPred’ for computer aided vaccine design. This new software tool helps in the prediction of vaccine candidates from a pathogen, thus reducing time in vaccine development. VaxiPred is available to users as a subscription-based web service. This software tool is an integrated version of 14 different immunoinformatics based software programmes developed by IMTECH for discovering antigens of the disease causing pathogens.
