International Symposium on Compound Design Technologies
News Feb 06, 2014
Of particular interest to computational chemists working in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and drug discovery industries, attendees will hear about technologies that guide them to successful small molecule and biotherapeutic drug discovery and development, intuitive molecular design and 3D-QSAR interpretation as well as knowledge based toxicity prediction.
The keynote presentation will be made by Dr John Overington (EMBL-EBI) with other presentations from Dr. Kimito Funatsu (University of Tokyo), Dr. Yoshio Hamada (Kobe Gakuin University) and Dr. Hiroshi Chuman (University of Tokushima), Dr. Matt Segall (Optibrium), Dr. Tim Cheeseright (Cresset), Dr. Thierry Hanser (Lhasa Limited) and Dr. Mark Swindells (Chemogenomix).
HIV-1 replicates in ninja-like ways. The virus slips through the membrane of vital white blood cells. Inside, HIV-1 copies its genes and scavenges parts to build a protective bubble for its copies. Now, supercomputers have helped model a key building block in the HIV-1 protective capsid, which could lead to strategies for potential therapeutic intervention in HIV-1 replication.READ MORE
