(FRIDAY, June 23 - Scientific Presentations, 10:30-11:00)

Peptide therapeutics represent a unique niche within drug discovery. Computational methods and strategies developed for either small molecules or large molecules are not always applicable to this class of molecules. Opportunities to impact peptide discovery projects using computational methods will be presented. Examples discussed will include visualization of mutational SAR data, application of protein-protein docking, and peptide stability engineering.
