Informatics studies represent the useful tool for development of the biologic-based therapeutics including proteins, antibodies, and vaccines. In this context, the bioinformatics studies are able to give more insights into the assessment of the effectiveness of the protein constructs, which have been developed as biologic-based therapeutics. Such investigations need a variety of data processing and analysis based on existing knowledge of gene functions and molecular interactions. Here, it is attempted to review some in silico approaches to assess physicochemical properties, posttranslational modification, hydrophobic behavior, solvent accessibility, allergenicity, and other properties of protein drugs and vaccines. Besides, in a part of this review, in silico strategies that are applicable during codon optimization of a recombinant protein are discussed.
