Leveraging Computational Technologies

Computer-aided drug discovery and design uses computational tools and techniques to identify and enhance biologically active molecules. This may be to predict whether a given drug candidate will selectively bind to a particular target.  A related field of molecular dynamics predicts the conformation of a small molecule and the binding capacity of the biological target. Ultimately, insights gained from computational drug discovery and design should be validated against traditional drug-discovery approaches, but the speed, rapid design cycles and price savings of computer aided drug discovery design provides Proteus a distinct competitive advantage.
