New Approach to Computationally Designing Drugs for GPCRs

September 8, 2016

Modeling protein interactions with drugs has long been computationally challenging. One obstacle is these interactions often take relatively long to occur and conventional molecular dynamics simulation is insufficient. This week a group of researchers, using several EXSEDE supercomputers, report a hybrid in silico-experimental approach that shows promise as a drug design tool for use with G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) Read more…
