FACILITY MANAGEMENT / EXPERTISE:

Structural Function to Drug Discovery

image002Our research will devote to facilitate technology for probing hot-area that link to specific function in biomolecular recognition and biomolecule-compound interactions, and to devise strategies for structure-based drug discovery as an integral part of the AS-GRC chemical biology research. The major duty, therefore, is to maintain an up-to-date in silico drug discovery platform and to implement new selection methods to assist research PIs in defining features of research targets for drug discovery. Computational approach will be using local surface searching, docking, and fragment-based filling methods, for starting template generation as well as for lead optimization.
