Specially designed computer software is revolutionizing procedures for structured or rational drug design and discovery. The Guidebook on Molecular Modeling in Drug Design serves as a manual for the analysis ofmolecular structure and the correlation of these structures with pharmacological reactions. Intended as an introductory guide for advanced students and professionals with an interest in computer-assisted modeling for drug design and discovery, this bookwill also be of interest to medicinal and organic chemists, pharmaceutical researchers, pharmacologists, and biochemists who want to gain further insight into this rapidly advancing field.Molecular modeling is assuming an important role in the understanding of three-dimensional aspects in the specificity of drug-receptor interactions at the molecular level. This research area has become a well-established discipline in pharmaceutical research. It has created unprecedented opportunities in assisting medicinal chemists in the design of new therapeutic agents. Advances made in computer hardware and in theoretical medicinal chemistry have brought high-performance computing and graphics tools within reach of most academic and industrial laboratories, facilitating the development of useful approaches to rational drug design.The Guidebook on Molecular Modeling in Drug Design serves as a manual for the analysis of the molecular structure of biological molecules and drugs and the correlation of these structures with pharmacological actions. Intended as a guide for advanced students and professionals with an interest in computer-assisted modeling for drug design and discovery, this book will also be of interest to medicinal and organic chemists, pharmaceutical researchers, pharmacologists, and biochemists who want to gain further insight into this rapidly advancing field.

Molecular modeling has assumed an important role in understanding the three-dimensional aspects of specificity in drug-receptor interactions at the molecular level. Well-established in pharmaceutical research, molecular modeling offers unprecedented opportunities for assisting medicinal chemists in the design of new therapeutic agents. Advances made in computer hardware and in theoretical medicinal chemistry have brought high-performance computing and graphics tools within the reach of most academic and industrial laboratories, and permitted the development of new approaches to rational drug design. The Guidebook on Molecular Modeling in Drug Design serves as a manual for the analysis of the molecular structure of biological molecules and drugs and the correlation of these structures with pharmacological actions.

Editorial Reviews

"A particular strength of the book is its practically-oriented approach, with detailed descriptions of the techniques used for modeling."ANGEWAITE CHEM"This book...gives a good introduction and overview of the rational design methods that are currently used in pharmaceutical research. As such, it also makes worthwhile reading for all researchers involved in drug discovery, e.g. medicinal chemists, molecular biologists and pharmacologists, who wish to gain a better insight into the possibilities offered by these techniques. I would even recommend that managers who need to decide on the organization of a molecular modelling environment in their company take a closer look at this book!"--TIPS
