Molecular Modeling and Drug Design

Molecular modelling has develop into a beneficial and essential tool to medicinal chemists in the drug design action. Molecular modelling characterize the generation, manipulation or image of three-dimensional structures of molecules and combine physico-chemical properties. It associates a range of computerized technologies based on theoretical chemistry approch and experimental data to anticipate molecular and biological properties. Structure based drug discovery is basic to the able development of therapeutic agents and to the considerate of metabolic processes. The traditional way of drug discovery is the experimental screening of large number of libraries of chemicals against a biological target (high-throughput screening or HTS) for describing novel lead compounds.

The genetic function approximation (GFA) algorithm offers a new approach to the problem of building quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) and quantitative structure-property relationship (QSPR) models. Molecular dynamics (MD) is a computer simulation method for studying the physical movements of atoms and molecules, and is thus a type of N-body simulation. Drug discovery is the process through which potential new medicines are identified. It involves a wide range of scientific disciplines, including biology, chemistry and pharmacology. Targeted drug delivery, sometimes called smart drug delivery, is a method of delivering medication to a patient in a manner that increases the concentration of the medication in some parts of the body relative to others. Gene therapy is an experimental technique that uses genes to treat or prevent disease. Docking is a method which predicts the preferred orientation of one molecule to a second when bound to each other to form a stable complex.
