Because ligand structure-activity relationships are a powerful probe of drug-macromolecule interactions, computational techniques have been developed to identify the consensus hydrogen bonds and/or hydrophobic interactions required for binding as well as to quantitatively describe the shape and character of the binding site. This information can then be used to computationally identify potentially active existing molecules and to design novel structures. Concepts from these proven techniques are now being applied to the design of combinatorial libraries that will be tested against a variety of macromolecules.

Tea and coffee will be served in R3151 Beckman Institute at 2:15pm.
