SnapShot: Influenza by the Numbers

  title={SnapShot: Influenza by the Numbers},
  author={Tal Einav and Lauren E. Gentles and Jesse D. Bloom},
Influenza is one of the best-studied viruses of all time, and as such, it serves as a testbed to extend our biological knowledge to the nanoscale. Many of the key processes underlying influenza infection and our antibody response against the virus have been thoroughly investigated. This SnapShot describes these key numbers for prototypical lab-adapted strains of the human influenza A virus. To view this SnapShot, open or download the PDF.

Defining and Manipulating B Cell Immunodominance Hierarchies to Elicit Broadly Neutralizing Antibody Responses against Influenza Virus.
A computational model of affinity maturation is developed to map the patterns of immunodominance that evolve upon immunization with natural and engineered displays of hemagglutinin (HA), the influenza vaccine antigen and demonstrates that complex patterns in antibody immunogenicity can be rationally defined and then manipulated to elicit engineered immunity.
