Epitope mapping is the process of identification of the molecular determinants for antibody-antigen recognition on the antigen. Identification of the epitope is a key step in the characterization of monoclonal antibodies, especially those used in therapeutic strategies. It has also been essential in the design of vaccines against toxins or against enzymes. To obtain information on sequential and/or assembled epitopes, various approaches have been developed in conjunction with mass spectrometry. Fine epitope mapping could be achieved by this approach with microgram quantities of antibodies and in a short time compared to conventional mapping methods. OMICS Group through its Open Access Initiative is committed to make genuine and reliable contributions to the scientific community. OMICS Group hosts over 700+ peer-reviewed journals and has organized over 3000+ International Scientific Conferences all over the world. OMICS International is has wide classification of journals and Molecular Biology is one of the important of them. Molecular Biology covers each and every aspect of gene studies from the very basic to the new advance.
