In Silico drug discovery method for computationally modelled target proteins

Posted on August 18, 2016 by

Traditionally, drug molecules have been identified through high-throughput experimental screening. Since this process is costly, a computational method called Virtual Screening (VS) has emerged as a complementary approach since the early 1990s. VS can be performed effectively if the tertiary structure of the target protein is known (structure-based virtual screening, SBVS). However, existing SBVS methods […]
