Allergome: a unifying platform

Arb Paul Ehrlich Inst Bundesamt Sera Impfstoffe Frankf A M. 2006:(95):29-39; discussion 39-40.


The approaches used in both basic research and clinical work in allergology must be reconsidered in the light of information technology. Internet resources are further amplified by the parallel development of other new tools, such as molecular biology and nanotechnology. Information technology, molecular biology and nanotechnology are tightly related entities that fully express their power once applied to biomedical fields. Bioinformatics applied to allergological research simplifies the approach to the increasing wealth of knowledge.
