In turn, this has medical applications to rational drug design, through the field of molecular dynamics.
Efforts to revolutionize drug design with computers have stumbled in the past.
About a decade ago the buzzword was "rational drug design."
This method is usually referred to as ligand-based drug design.
This has encouraged the rapid development of the structure-based drug design.
For some genetic diseases, an approach called rational drug design is already producing results.
Its straightforward action is what makes it an easy target for drug design, he added.
Such an approach is known as rational drug design.
For now, though, structures estimated by computers are not likely to be precise enough to use in drug design.
One or more of these steps may, but not necessarily, involve computer-aided drug design.
