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. For presenting the on-going research and exciting discoveries within the realms of many Scholarly journals that have been started, which are playing a major role in enhancing the dissemination of natural and scientific knowledge. Scholarly Journals are journals which are respected for the research and information they provide about the topic they cover. Scholarly journals publish good quality articles by subjecting them to a thorough and careful peer review process. Articles are often anonymously reviewed by several other subject experts; this process is called "peer review process" and such a periodical is considered a "refereed journal. A scholarly journal presents rigorously peer-reviewed scientific articles in the following categories: original Research Articles, Communications, Reviews and Mini-Reviews, Commentaries and Letters to the Editor. OMICS Group International is one of the leading Open Access Publishers which is publishing 700+ peer-reviewed journals with the dramatic effort of editorial board members. Molecular Biology publishes original research articles, novel, and scientifically sound findings dealing with genes related living organism.
