Approach to Virtual Screening By Molecular Docking

Structure-based virtual screening

The three-dimensional structure of a target protein is used to guide the docking of small molecule compounds to binding sites, thereby predicting ligand-protein interactions and identifying potential drug candidates.

Ligand-based virtual screening

Using known ligands or pharmacologies, search a database for structurally similar compounds and predict their binding to target proteins based on similarity.

Hybrid virtual screening

This approach combines structure-based and ligand-based methods to enhance the accuracy and reliability of virtual screening studies, by incorporating information from both the target protein and the ligand compounds.
