Rapid Computational Identification of Therapeutic Targets for Pathogens
Jonathan Allen | 20-ERD-062
We will develop a computational drug target identification tool, which links previous knowledge of proteins and their drug target potential to rapidly guide countermeasure design in newly sequenced pathogen genomes. Systematically inferring links between a new pathogen and previous countermeasure design efforts will create a rigorous system for prioritizing new countermeasures for biological threats.
