Measuring Virtual Screening Accuracy

Posted on

Virtual Screening (VS) is a core in-silico technology in medicinal and computational chemistry. Several tools have been developed to exploit protein structures or collections of compounds to provide a quick and economical method for the discovery of novel active compounds. Hence, the comparative evaluation of VS algorithms becomes a fundamental exercise to assess the applicability […]

Targeting protein-protein interactions for new therapies

Posted on

Why protein-protein interactions are important? Protein-protein interactions (PPI) play a major role in several of the cellular functions and processes that take place in our organism. Researchers estimate that around 130.000 binary interactions occur between different proteins (1). These interactions also regulate several of the pathogenic mechanisms that bacteria use during the infection process. The […]
