In silico approach towards H5N1 virus protein and transcriptomics-based medication

Usman Sumo Friend Tambunan, Arli Aditya Parikesit


H5N1 influenza A virus is a serious threat to human population. With a considerable mortality rate, strategies for coping with the infection are being developed. Our research group and some others investigated the potential therapeutic and preventive measures for tackling H5N1 infections. Protein based and transcriptomics analyses are getting more important in this field. The trends towards the integration of both protein-based and transcriptomics for H5N1 analysis are indeed feasible.

Keywords: H5N1, protein-based, transcriptomics, siRNA, hemagglutinin (HA), matrix1 (M1), non-structural 1 (NS1), neuraminidase (NA), and matrix2 (M2)
