Special Issue "Chemoinformatics and Drug Design"
A special issue of Pharmaceuticals (ISSN 1424-8247).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2018).
Interests: molecular modeling; computer-aided drug design; bioinformatics; chemoinformatics
Chemoinformatics is the branch of chemical sciences regarding the design, creation, organization, retrieval, analysis, management, and dissemination of chemical information. In this context, one could say that chemoinformatics is the application of information science methods to solve chemical issues. Due to the development of hardware and software technologies, chemoinformatics is today a mature scientific field. Moreover, it is well known that, during the drug design process, a huge amount of chemical data is generated and, consequently, chemoinformatics have been successfully applied by the pharmaceutical community. To celebrate the success story and the advances on this important field, the journal Pharmaceuticals invites fellow scientists to submit original papers or reviews, which will be published as a Special Issue on “Chemoinformatics and Drug Design”.
Looking forward to your contribution.
Prof. Dr. Osvaldo Andrade Santos-Filho
