National Workshop on Computer Aided Drug Design on 20– 22 July, 2018 @ SRIBS, Pampady, Kottayam
Computer-aided drug design is an exciting and diverse discipline where various aspects of applied and basic research merge and stimulate each other. The rapid identification of novel therapeutic agents for specific disease states is potentially the greatest step forward in health care. The fields of genomics and proteomics triggered by the developments in biological, chemical and physical sciences will contribute to this process. Advances in structural biology have allowed to explore the 3-dimensional (3D) structures of biological target molecules. This information can be used to identify chemicals with a high potential for binding to the biological target molecules. These chemicals may then be obtained and experimentally assayed and optimized for the desired biological activity. Both the lead compounds and their optimized analogs represent chemical entities with a high probability of being developed into therapeutic agents and, therefore, are of great interest to pharmaceutical companies. Over the years, new technologies such as comparative modeling based on natural structural homologues have emerged and began to be exploited in lead design.
