Workshop: Structure-based drug design with CSD-Discovery

Wednesday 15th September 2021 - 15:30 - 17:00 (CEST)

Dr Abhik Mukhopadhyay and Dr Francesca Stanzione will guide you through a practical example of structure-based drug design, using CSD-Discovery tools.

In this workshop you will learn how to, given a protein-ligand complex, analyse the geometry of your ligand molecule as well as the interactions between the ligand and the protein binding site; how to simultaneously mine 3D information from both CSD and PDB structures using pharmacophore features to identify ligand modifications and scaffold hops that are tolerated in the protein binding site; how to predict the binding mode of new compounds using flexible protein-ligand docking. Applications you will use: Mogul, SuperStar, CSD-CrossMiner, GOLD.
