 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.

 Structure-Based Drug Design and Ligand Modification
The course covers MOE applications for interactive structure based design. Examples include active site visualization, protein-ligand contact analysis and ligand modification/optimization in the receptor pocket. Conformational searching and analysis of the ligand to assess ligand flexibility will be discussed. A protocol for aligning and superposing protein complexes in the context of protein selectivity will be studied.
