Overview

This book provides a myriad of fresh ideas and energetic approaches to the newer aspects of everyday drug modelling. With contributions from some of the best young talents of today, Molecular Modelling and Drug Design encourages a break from old traditions and probes the unexplored avenues of the modelling tool. The contributors' views act as a gauge to future trends in computer-aided drug design-an area that continues to expand and play an ever more significant role in drug discovery.

Editorial Reviews

P. Kusnirikova
Molecular modeling has developed over the last twenty years largely and is now a very broad area. In this book, the authors have attempted to collect together some of the best young talents, with a mandate to report without restriction on what interest them. The resulting collection of broad topics and fresh thinking provides the reader with a taste of the future in drug design and the encouragement to break from the old traditions and probe hitherto unexplored avenues of the modeling tool.
