Fragment based ligand design is a promising technique for identifying novel lead compounds for drug discovery. Fragment based discovery involves identifying small low molecular weight compounds with low affinity to the target to use as the foundation for growing and linking to create high affinity lead compounds with high selectivity. Fragment based discovery has facilitated the incorporation of greater chemical diversity in libraries for more efficient novel lead identification This book discusses computational methods for fragment library design, computational docking ranking and screening of fragments and computational methods for linking and growing fragments to yield lead compounds.

About Author

Dr. Rachelle J. Bienstock, received her undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering from The Cooper Union in New York City and her Ph.D. in Chemistry from The University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Following postdoctoral studies at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center (Dallas), involving NMR and molecular modeling of constrained peptide analogs and peptidomimetics, she joined The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, (NIEHS), Research Triangle Park, NC, as a molecular modeler and computational chemist. Her main research interests are protein structure and protein complex prediction methodologies, computational and structure based ligand design methods and protein-protein and protein-ligand docking studies.
