Virtual Screening is cost-effective and reliable technique that can be applied to identify potential leads and avoid undesirable compounds that would otherwise result in expensive and time consuming experimental methods. It should be noted that experience and knowledge about the target are very crucial in identifying true positives in such experiments. Even with its current limitations, virtual screening accesses a large number of possible new ligands, most of which may then be simply purchased and tested. Therefore, Virtual Screening is a useful and promising tool for modern computer-assisted drug discovery and design. Vs Geromichalos GD, Virtual Screening Strategies and Application in Drug Designing.
