... do is run the experiments in mice. That will mimic the whole process of the vaccination, where the vaccine gets delivered into a cell of a mouse and then we see the response of the immune system.

BN: Can these techniques be used elsewhere in medical research?

Jojic: First of all, you can apply this work to other pathogens to build vaccines. Additionally, you can use the same techniques in conjunction with evolutionary models and try to understand various forms of variability in evolution.

We have also used these representations for pattern discovery in regulatory mechanisms in the human genome and various other places. The work we are doing can have an application in many, many different places in biology.
