Recent advances in structure determination and computational methods have encouraged the development of structure-based virtual screening. Here we survey progress in the field and review the most recent methods, validation experiments and real applications, including an in-house example of hit identification for the oncology target Hsp90. These results provide a basis for discussing the current state of structure-based virtual screening and to outline the developments that are expected to have a major impact in the near future.
Keywords: virtual screening, in-silico screening, docking, structure-based drug design, hsp90, binding mode, prediction, seeded libraries
