Drug design is an splendid inventive process of new medication on the basis of biological target. It is also known as rational drug design or rational design. That is the invention in medical history in order to yield significant therapeutic response. The drug is an organic molecule, when it is bind to target site it can either inhibit or activate the function of a biomolecule which results in therapeutic benefit. The drug design involves the design of such molecules that are similar to the bio molecular target site in shape and charge in order to bind to it. Drug design relies on the knowledge of the three dimensional structure of bimolecular targets.

Fragment based drug design is identification of fragments or components of low molecular weight or lead compounds, which can bind with weak affinity to the target site. Fragment based discovery involved finding such weakly binding fragments and grow them or combine them in order to create lead components with higher affinity or selectivity to bimolecular target site. These techniques achieved credible success in drug development.

Structure based drug design is the process of designing a chemical structure with the objective of identifying a compound which suits for clinical tests. The process involves how that shapes and charges to interact with biological target inorder to yield therapeutic activity. Structure based drug design based on three dimensional structures strictly.

In silico methods with use of bioinformatics are in increasing demand in drug discovery and development that can identify and analyze active sites and suggest potential drug molecules that can bind to these sites specifically. They analyze the target structures for possible binding sites, generate candidate molecules, check for their drug likeness, dock these molecules with the target, rank them according to their binding affinities, further optimize the molecules to improve binding characteristics.

Molecular modeling is a tool which helps in the generation, manipulation or representation of three dimensional structures of molecule and associated physico chemical properties as well. it involves use of computerized techniques based on theoretical chemistry methods and experimental data to predict molecular and biological properties. Molecular modeling helps to investigate, interpret and discovery of new phenomena.

Heat shock proteins are the proteins that produced when cells are expose to the biologically stressful conditions. Some selected heat shock proteins also known as chaperones. Increased temperature and some internal changes such as PH change will lead to the proteins to denature which cannot morphologically, functionally normal and leads to unfold of proteins that miss folded proteins aggregates and eventually kills the cell. Heat Shock Proteins are induced rapidly at high levels to deal with this problem. These can able to mediate the synthesis, stability and transulation ability of mRNA.

Antigen – antibody reaction is a chemical interaction between antigens of cell surface and antibodies which are produced by the B-lymphocytes of the white blood cells. Each antibody can bound with specific antigen which is due to specific chemical constitution of the particular antibody. I it doesn’t happen so it leads to cross linking which is fatal . This is the reaction which keeps the body free from and protected from pathogens, chemical toxins and foreign bodies. Immunity of the humans is mediated by this specific phenomena.

Nanomedicine is the application of the nanotechnology, which ranges from application of nanomaterials to nanoelectronic biosensors medicinally. The functionality can be attain to nanomedicine by interact with them biomolecule. As most of nanomaterial structure is similar to the biological structures these can be widely useful for in vitro and in vivo researches. With of invention its widely using in the development of diagnostic devices, analytical tools, drug delivery vehicles and physical therapy applications.

In pharmacology the agonist- antagonist are the type of receptor ligand or drug which binds to the receptor and mediates the therapeutic response either by activates or blocks the receptor. Agonists activates receptors to produce desired action whereas the antagonists blocks the action of agonist upon the binding to receptor. inverse agonist causes to action against to that of agonist.

Peptidomimetics are the compounds whose pharmacophores that is their essential elements mimic a natural peptide or protein in order to retain the ability to interact with the specified biological target and produce same biological effect. This can form either rom modification of the persistent peptide or by designing the peptoids and β-peptides. With the changed structure can attain significant molecular properties like desired biological activity and stability.

Proteases are the enzymes that are responsible for proteolysis that is cleave of proteins by hydrolysis of peptide bonds that links amino acids which are in peptide chain. These are responsible for many life and death processes. Whereas protease inhibitors are blocks the activity of protease enzymes which helps in the growth life threatening viruses and immature them and make them unable to infect new cells.

Virtual screening is a computational method which plays a key role in drug discovery. it is used to search small molecule libraries to find the structures those which likely bind or interact with drug target. It is also defined as "automatically evaluating very large libraries of compounds" using computer programs. As the accuracy of this method is increased it is widely using in drug design process.

*2017 Journal Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2015 and 2016 with the number of times they are cited in 2017 based on Google Scholar Citation Index database. If 'X' is the total number of articles published in 2015 and 2016, and 'Y' is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2017 then, journal impact factor = Y/X
