The seminar will look into the importance of ligand (a molecule in biochemistry) and protein preparation in computational studies, docking in virtual screening of ligands and focused library design of selective estrogen receptor.

Modulators using combinatorial docking method, quantum mechanics in structure based drug design, novel methods to predict protein conformational changes during ligand binding are included for deliberations.

Jorg Weiser, vice president, Schrdinger, Germany; Shashidhar Rao, senior application scientist, Schrdinger, USA; Jas Gata Aura, Schrdinger, Britain and R. Raghu, Schrdinger, India, will be among those who deliver lectures on the occasion.
