2022 Denovo tutorial 2 with PDBID 4ZUD
De Novo Design
De novo design refers to the process of generating novel ligands in an effort to identify molecules of physiological significance that can be further optimized to become approved drug molecules. The synthesis of thousands of potential drug molecules are done experimentally daily, but with computers, millions of molecules can be computationally modelled and pre-selected for possible synthesis in a fraction of the time it would take to test all possible molecules solely experimentally. With this, scientists are able to direct their attention towards molecules that have the highest probability of imparting a therapeutic effect upon binding to a respective receptor.
