Bioinformatics and Drug Discovery describes the bioinformatic approaches and techniques employed along the pipeline of drug development from genes to proteins to drugs. The book focuses on gene microarray analysis and techniques for target identification and validation. In addition, clinical applications showing how the analysis can be used for prognostication and diagnosis are described. The second section focuses on protein analysis, including target validation and identification using modern proteomic analysis as well as protein modeling techniques. The third section discusses chemoinformatics, including virtual screening and how to computationally approach chemical space.In Bioinformatics and Drug Discovery, a panel of researchers from academic and pharmaceutical laboratories describes readily reproducible bioinformatic methods to advance the drug discovery process from gene identification to protein ...
