Small Molecule Virtual Screening
The course covers the suite of MOE applications which can be applied to small-molecule virtual screening. Topics include the preparation of small molecule databases for virtual screening, filtering databases based on substructure matching and property values, building QSAR/QSPR models and fingerprint similarity models as database filters, pharmacophore query creation and searching, and small-molecule docking. These tools are used in conjunction to present a complete virtual screening workflow. The creation of de novo structures using the MOE Scaffold Replacement and MOE Medchem transformation applications is also covered.
Ligand-Based Drug Design and SAR Analysis
The course covers essential in silico methods needed for guiding drug discovery projects in the absence of a protein structure. Analysis of SAR through R-group profiling and matched molecular pairs (MMP) analysis using MOEsaic to determine relationships among a chemical series are examined. Molecular descriptor calculations and their application for determining property correlations along with diversity analysis are described. Molecular alignments and conformational analyses of a congeneric series are explored to assess the impact of ligand substituents. An approach for developing pharmacophore queries is discussed. Management and manipulation of MOE databases are also covered.
