MSU researchers publish flu vaccine study
Henry Wan, associate professor at Mississippi State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine, and his colleagues recently published a study in mBio, an American Society of Microbiology publication, which outlines a possibly more efficient and cost-effective way to develop flu vaccines. The study “Using Sequencing Data to Infer the Antigenicity of Influenza Virus” outlines the use of a computerized system to provide a visual of the distance between antigens, the substances that cause antibody production in response to different viruses. Wan and his colleagues entered the antigenic characteristics of the virus. The data was translated into mathematical formulas that provided an in-depth look at the virus over time and in populations.
