Recent concerns about bioterrorism and emerging diseases have led to a new focus on the development of vaccines and drugs targeting infectious pathogens. An important component of vaccine development is the characterization of immune responses (to vaccination, for example, or following infection in experimental settings) by evaluating the epitopes(More)
Epitopes are defined as parts of antigens interacting with receptors of the immune system. Knowledge about their intrinsic structure and how they affect the immune response is required to continue development of techniques that detect, monitor, and fight diseases. Their scientific importance is reflected in the vast amount of epitope-related information(More)
OKIES is an expert system that troubleshoots newly assembled AT&T 3B2 computer systems. All AT&T 3B2 models and configurations are analyzed by OKIES. The expert system uses an architecture-based design to apply the same knowledge to different machines. An architectural model of the machine is constructed when the session begins. This model is used(More)
