    Abstract

    Host-pathogen interactions are at the heart of our understanding of infectious diseases, including their spread, development, diagnosis, and treatment. As such, the study of these interactions is essential to modern medicine, especially in the face of increasing antibiotic resistance, and requires significant attention. The key developments in the field, as well as possible future directions, are detailed in this article, with an emphasis on how bioinformatics has shaped our current state of knowledge, and the role it will play in the future.
