Drug Design

With the development of computer technology and computational chemistry, molecular biology and medicinal chemistry, drug design has entered a rational stage, in which drug molecular design is the main direction of new drug discovery. It is based on the research results of life sciences such as biochemistry, enzymology, molecular biology and genetics. It aims at the potential drug design targets disclosed in these basic studies including enzymes, receptors, ion channels and nucleic acids. The chemical structural characteristics of other ligands or natural products can be used to design reasonable drug molecules.
