Abstract:

From library shaping to ADME-Tox prediction via virtual screening, computational chemistry is an integral component of Lead Generation. It provides a series of tools that help focusing on compounds with a balanced pharmacodynamic and ADME-Tox profile together with a high potential to optimize potency and selectivity.

Keywords: lead generation, virtual screening, adme, library design, lead-likeness, frequent hitters, similarity, clustering, complexity
