Edited by Natanya Civjan. © 2012 John Wiley & Sons, Inc. Published 2012 by John Wiley & Sons, Inc. ” Identifying a selective small-molecule inhibitor for each protein in human genome is a formidable challenge for drug discovery and for chemical biology. Experimentally, high-throughput screening is the most widely used technology currently to identify hits for a target. On the other hand, computational methods, such as virtual screening and structure-based design, have become equally important to identify and to optimize small-molecule inhibitors.

RECEPTOR-BASED VLS 43 should be applied. The structure of the chapter follows the common flow of identifying small-molecule inhibitors. We will discuss the particular computational methodologies used at different stages of the process in subsequent sections. 1 VIRTUAL SCREENING IN SELECTING SMALL MOLECULE INHIBITORS Virtual screening (VS) uses computational or theoretic methods to select molecules with desired biologic properties. It has broad applications in pharmaceutical industry. In this chapter, we limit ourselves to VS to identify biologically active small molecules.
