About Course

Immunology is the study of the immune system in humans, animals, plants, and sapient species. It is an important branch of the medical and biological sciences. Immunoinformatics also known as computational immunology is a field of Bioinformatics. It is the interface between computer science and experimental immunology. Immunology and immunoinformatics combined help in the identification of key role-playing factors in a particular disease and immune response condition, and then design therapeutics for such diseases and conditions. 

You don’t need any prior Bioinformatics, immunology, and immunoinformatics knowledge or skills for this course. Learning the underlying concepts of immunology provides you with the knowledge of how components of the immune system work together to keep the organism safe and healthy and what types of components of the immune system fight against pathogens and microbes. With the knowledge of immunology, you will be able to design antibodies, peptides, vaccines, and therapeutics for immunological disorders, viral attacks, and much more. 

In this Advanced Immunology MasterClass, you will gain insights into complex and advanced level information and topics such as complete knowledge of immunology, innate immunity, components of innate immunity, innate immune reactions, antigen capture and presentation to immune cells (lymphocytes), antibodies, antigen-recognition, T-cell mediated immunity, B-cell mediated immunity, humoral immunity, autoimmunity, vaccines, tolerance, hypersensitivity, immunological disorders, clinical cases and more.
