Abstract

Vaccinomics is the branch of omics, which deals with vaccine analysis; vaccine itself is used for boosting the immunity to diseases. Most of the vaccine reactions appear to be more common than vaccine-preventable diseases. Vaccinomics encompasses the fields of immunogenetics and immunogenomics as applied to understanding the mechanisms of heterogeneity in immune responses to vaccines and new drug targets. Recent advances in the fields of immunology, vaccines, genomics, proteomics and Human Genome Project allowed to discover and developed new vaccines.
