Recognizing linear B-cell epitopes is important for the epitope-based vaccine design, and it have been attracting worldwide researchers. Compared to traditional experimental techniques, the computational methods for epitope prediction are faster and more economical. The earliest computational methods for linear B-cell epitopes prediction were based on some amino acid property, and their performances were poor. Recently, machine learning methods were applied to epitopes prediction as so to make… CONTINUE READING
