InSilicoVaccine – COVID-19

Enhancing the efficacy of a COVID-19 Vaccine


Covid19- a global pandemic caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. In response to the pandemic, researchers are exploring innovative approaches, such as in silico methods, to enhance the efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines and address the challenges associated with traditional vaccine development.

Question of Interest

To determine the potential inclusion of novel vaccine components, including those from BCG and DTP vaccines?


BIOINFORMATICS: Selection Of Components

Test T and B cell reactivity– Test epitope activity to establish antigenicity.


AGENT-BASED MODEL: Dynamic simulations

Agent-based Immune System Simulation- Simulate effect on disease progression in virtual patients.  


In silico trials of vaccine efficacy and immune responses- Simulate SARS-CoV-2 infection in a population of virtual patients.  


  • In silico methods could help overcome some of the logistical and ethical challenges associated with traditional vaccine development, such as the need for large-scale animal testing or the availability of human volunteers.
  • In silico methods can also be used to optimize vaccine design by predicting the most effective antigen sequences or adjuvants to elicit a robust immune response. This could help improve the efficacy of vaccines and reduce the risk of viral mutations.
