What is VacTarBac?

VacTarBac is a platform which stores vaccine candidate against several pathogenic bacteria. The vaccine are designed on the basis of their probabilty to act as epitope, thus have the potential to induce any of the several arm of immune system. These epitopes have been predicted against the virulence factor and essentail genes of 14 bacterial species.
