Integrating in silico and in vitro analysis of peptide binding affinity to HLA-Cw*0102:a bioinformatic approach to the prediction of new epitopes


Predictive models of peptide-Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) binding affinity are important components of modern computational immunovaccinology. Here, we describe the development and deployment of a reliable peptide-binding prediction method for a previously poorly-characterized human MHC class I allele, HLA-Cw*0102.
