Computational methods impact all aspects of modern drug discovery and most notably these methods move rapidly from academic exercises to becoming drugs in clinical trials... This insightful book represents the experience and understanding of the global experts in the field and spotlights both the structural and medicinal chemistry aspects of drug design. The need to 'encode' the factors that determine adsorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion and toxicology are explored, as they remain the critical issues in this area of research. This indispensable resource provides the reader with: * A rich understanding of modern approaches to docking * A comparison and critical evaluation of state-of-the-art methods * Details on harnessing computational methods for both analysis and prediction * An insight into prediction potencies and protocols for unbiased evaluations of docking and scoring algorithms * Critical reviews of current fragment based methods with perceptive applications to kinases Addressing a wide range of uses of protein structures for drug discovery the Editors have created and essential reference for professionals in the pharmaceutical industry and moreover an indispensable core text for all graduate level courses covering molecular interactions and drug discovery.

Janet Finer-Moore is a Research Biologist at the University of California Her contribution to the detailed determination of the structural and chemical mechanism of a two substrate enzyme and detection of amphipathic helices in protein and gene sequences have perpetuated over 28 publications. She is a member of the AAAS, the ACA, the ACS and the Biophysical Society.Review:
The book has been carefully constructed as a series of essays, each addressing an important topic, and even better, topics, that there are many misunderstandings and misconceptions about.Each chapter is well referenced and serves as a good entry point into the literature.I would also strongly recommend this book to medicinal chemists leading project teams that use structural information.
