Summary

Recent progress in defining genomic, transcriptomic, and proteomic profiles of human pathogens promise to revolutionize vaccine development. Antigen discovery by traditional biochemical approaches is generally piecemeal and time consuming. These are being replaced by technologies that allow proteomes to be mined for reactive antibody and T-cell antigens in a comprehensive and unbiased fashion. Moreover, naturally acquired or vaccine-induced immunity can now be subjected to a systems biology approach to define the antigens than confer protection. In this chapter, high throughput (HT) proteomic screening technology for vaccine antigen discovery will be reviewed. Future challenges for translation of data obtained by HT screening into vaccines will also be discussed.
