    Aim: Development of a vaccine to fight Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections is of prime concern as the pathogen has developed multiple drug resistance. In the present study, by reverse vaccinology approach, a number of cell surface-exposed proteins are reported as potential vaccine candidate. Materials and Methods: P. aeruginosa PA 38182 encoded 7279 proteins were screened as cell surface proteins using TMHMM, LipoP, PsortB, and Signal P server. 40 screened antigens were selected and screened for suitability as epitope candidates by human leukocyte antigen Pred epitope prediction server. Results: A total of 30 high score epitopes were recorded; amongst them based on binding energy calculation, protein “putative holin” epitope emerged as the most suitable candidate. Conclusion: P. aeruginosa PA 38182 encodes 30 cell surface-exposed epitopes which could be implemented in vaccine research to control P. aeruginosa infections successfully since no approved vaccine is available for them.
