As major histocompatibility complexes in humans, the human leukocyte antigens (HLAs) have important functions to present antigen peptides onto T-cell receptors for immunological recognition and responses. Interpreting and predicting HLA–peptide binding are important to study T-cell epitopes, immune reactions, and the mechanisms of adverse drug reactions. We review different types of machine learning methods and tools that have been used for HLA–peptide binding prediction. We also summarize the descriptors based on which the HLA–peptide binding prediction models have been constructed and discuss the limitation and challenges of the current methods. Lastly, we give a future perspective on the HLA–peptide binding prediction method based on network analysis.

We found Bioinformatics and Biology insights very supportive and quick in guiding us in submitting our manuscript. The review of the manuscript was also very prompt. We also found that the review was fair and prompt and that was the most important thing for us. It was a very interesting experience for us. We also liked the video abstract service, which is very novel and encouraging for authors.
