Protein Engineering and Molecular Design

Molecular modelling has become a valuable and essential tool to medicinal chemists in the drug design process. Molecular modelling describes the generation, manipulation or representation of three-dimensional structures of molecules and associated physico-chemical properties. It involves a range of computerized techniques based on theoretical chemistry methods and experimental data to predict molecular and biological properties. Structure-based drug discovery is central to the efficient development of therapeutic agents and to the understanding of metabolic processes. The traditional way of drug discovery is the experimental screening of large libraries of chemicals against a biological target (high-throughput screening or HTS) for identifying new lead compounds.
