Multi Scale Approaches in Drug Discovery

Drug discovery is an expensive, time-consuming process and the modern drug discovery community is constantly challenged not only with discovering novel bioactive agents to combat resistance from known diseases and fight against new ones, but to do so in a way that is economically effective. Advances in both experimental and theoretical/computational methods envisage that the greatest challenges in drug discovery can be most successfully addressed by using a multi-scale approach, drawing on the specialties of a whole host of different disciplines. Multi-Scale Approaches to Drug Discovery furnishes chemists with the detail they need to identify drug leads with the highest potential before isolating and synthesizing them to produce effective drugs with greater swiftness than classical methods may allow. This significantly speeds up the search for more efficient therapeutic agents. After an introduction to multi-scale approaches outlining the need for and benefits of their use, the book goes on to explore a range of useful techniques and research areas, and their potential applications to this process. Profiling drug binding by thermodynamics, machine learning for predicting enzyme sub-classes, and multitasking models for computer-aided design and virtual compound screening are discussed, before the book goes on to review Alkaloid Menispermaceae leads, natural chemotherapeutic agents and methods for speeding up the design and virtual screening of therapeutic peptides. Flavonoids as multi-target compounds are then explored, before the book concludes with a review of Quasi-SMILES as a novel tool. Collecting together reviews and original research contributions written by leading experts in the field, Multi-Scale Approaches to Drug Discovery highlights cutting-edge approaches and practical examples of their implementation for those involved in the drug discovery process at many different levels. Using the combined knowledge of medicinal, computational, pharmaceutical and bio- chemists, it aims to support growth in the multi-scale approach to promote greater success in the development of new drugs. Offers practical guidance on ways to implement multiscale approaches for increased efficiency in drug discovery Draws on the experience of a highly skilled team of authors under the editorial guidance of one of the field's leading experts Includes cutting-edge techniques at the forefront of medicinal chemistry and drug discovery optimization

Progress in the application of machine learning (ML) to the physical and life sciences has been rapid. A decade ago, the method was mainly of interest to those in computer science departments, but more recently ML tools have been developed that show significant potential across wide areas of science. There is a growing consensus that ML software, and related areas of artificial intelligence, may, in due course, become as fundamental to scientific research as computers themselves. Yet a perception remains

Meeting future food needs without compromising environmental integrity is a central challenge for agriculture globally but especially for the Asia Pacific region – where 60% of the global population, including some of the world’s poorest, live on only 30% of the land mass. To guarantee the food security of this and other regions, growers worldwide are rapidly adopting genetically modified (GM) crops as the forerunner to protect against many biotic and abiotic stresses. Asia Pacific countries play an important role in this,
