Antigenic Cartography

Antigenic cartography is a type of mapping technique used to visualize the spatial organization of antigenic epitopes in biological systems, especially those related to viral infections. By creating a map of the relative positions of antigenic epitopes, scientists can uncover intricate details of the antigenic characteristics of an organism without requiring extensive laboratory experimentation. In addition, by revealing the organization of antigenic epitopes and their relative sizes, antigenic cartography can be used to compare antigenic profiles of sequences from different organisms, which could then be used to develop more effective vaccines. Antigenic cartography is an important tool for biomedical research, enabling scientists to gain greater insight into the genetic, immunological, and evolutionary relationships between various organisms.
