Scientific summary

Developments and applications of structural bioinfomatic and cheminformatic tools

Current developments:

  • e-Drug3D is a cheminformatic oriented database of the FDA approved drugs having a molecular weight less than 2000.
  • LEA3D is collection of computer programs to screen small molecule libraries (also called in silico or virtual screening), perform de novo drug design or build combinatorial libraries of compounds.

Case studies under collaboration at the IPMC Institute:

  • Homology modeling of the 3D structure of proteins (e.g.: human sPLA2, TREKs potassium channels, ASICs channels...)
  • Identification of ligands from large collections of small molecules (human sPLA2...)
