Protein Modeling & Rational Drug Design involves the design and optimization of small molecules from the ideal case, where a protein structure is available, to the other extreme where only a small collection of 'hits' from high throughput screening can be utilized.
1. Generating a 3D structure of a protein form its amino acid sequence using Homology Modeling or Modeler or Seqfold.
2. Computational approaches to the Drug Discovery & Design process using approaches such as Lead Generation and Lead Optimization by using Structure Based Drug Design techniques (Protein, Ligand Interactions) using tools such as Affinity, Ligand Fit, and Autodock.
3. Analogue Based Drug Design (QSAR) for Lead Optimization using techniques such as MFA & RSA.
4. Pharmacophore Generation.
5. The breadth of innovative techniques of Drug Discovery & Design allows you to efficiently use information from all possible sources on your therapeutic target.
