This volume offers a broad and interdisciplinary view of modern approaches to drug discovery as used by pharmaceutical companies and research institutes. It comprehensively covers proteomics, bioinformatics, screening techniques such as high-throughput-, natural compounds-, and NMR-based-screenings, combinatorial chemistry, compound library design, ligand- and structure-based drug design and pharmacokinetic approaches. Each of the thirteen chapters reviews the theory, background and application of a key technology in drug discovery, complemented by an extensive list of references to the original literature. This concise source of information will be useful for researchers, both in industry and academia, as well as students in the fieldsof medicinal, pharmaceutical and computational chemistry, bioinformatics, biochemistry, molecular biology and pharmacology.
