The field of bioinformatics has become a major part of the drug discovery pipeline playing a key role in improvement and acceleration of this time and money consuming process. Here we review the application of the informational spectrum method (ISM), a virtual spectroscopy method for structure/function analysis of proteins, in identification of functional protein domains representing candidate therapeutic targets for drugs against human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-1, anthrax, highly pathogenic influenza virus H5N1 and cardiovascular diseases.

Keywords: Bioinformatics, target, electron-ion interaction potential, informational spectrum method, H5N1, HIV-1, anthrax
