Current Computer-Aided Drug Design aims to publish all the latest developments in drug design based on computational techniques. The field of computer-aided drug design has had extensive impact in the area of drug design.
Current Computer-Aided Drug Design is an essential journal for all medicinal chemists who wish to be kept informed and up-to-date with all the latest and important developments in computer-aided methodologies and their applications in drug discovery. Each issue contains a series of timely, in-depth reviews/mini-reviews, original research articles and letter articles written by leaders in the field, covering a range of computational techniques for drug design, screening, ADME studies, theoretical chemistry; computational chemistry; computer and molecular graphics; molecular modeling; protein engineering; drug design; expert systems; general structure-property relationships; molecular dynamics; chemical database development and usage etc., providing excellent rationales for drug development.
