Wadhwa G, Setiya K, Hazra I, Madhan MT., In silico Streptococcus pneumoniae drug target by microarrays, Onl J Bioinform., 24 (2):74-81, 2023. Microarray expression data was used to identify genes co-expressed with Streptococcus pneumoniae virulent gene drug targets. Microarray data co-expressed genes with virulence dissimilar to host genome were selected as drug targets. We isolated 50 essential virulent genes without paralogues but sequenced against gut flora yielded 32 genes and against humans left only 13 putative drug targets.


Keywords: clusters, k-mean clustering, drug targets.
