Drug Discovery book from C.H.I.P.S.

Virtual Screening in Drug Discovery
edited by
Juan Alvarez
and Brian Shoichet

Features:

  • Considers ligand-based and docking-based virtual screens and the challenges facing the field
  • Discusses choice of compounds that are best suited as drug leads
  • Includes descriptor-based similarity, traditional pharmacophore searching, and similarity based on three-dimensional-pharmacophore fingerprints
  • Discusses practical considerations of molecular docking

Virtual Screening in Drug Discovery does not overwhelm you with more information than you need. Many of the strategies outlined will transcend the specifics of any given method.

Virtual Screening in Drug Discovery does not proclaim to offer single best ways to use the programs. What it does is provide a snapshot of virtual screening that gives you easy access to strategies and techniques for lead discovery.

Part I offers perspectives on both ligand-based and docking-based virtual screens. The authors of these chapters frame many of the challenges currently facing the field. Part II considers the choice of compounds that are best suited as drug leads. Part III discusses ligand-based approaches, including descriptor-based similarity, traditional pharmacophore searching, and similarity based 3D-pharmacophore fingerprints. The final two sections are devoted to molecular docking. Part IV outlines some important and practical considerations relating to the energetics of protein-ligand binding and target-site topography, whereas specific docking algorithms and strategies are discussed in Part V.
