5th National Symposium cum Workshop on “Recent Trends in Structural Bioinformatics and Computer Aided Drug Design” [SBCADD’2013]

19th- 22rd February, 2013

Organized by
Department of Bioinformatics
(Reaccredited with ‘A’ Grade by NAAC )

Human Genome Project is largely complete, so the problem facing by scientists is how to maximize the use of the newly acquired data for improving health care. It is estimated that the number of therapeutic targets available for drug discovery will increase from the current number of 600 to 1000 to perhaps as many as 5000 to 10,000. In addition to the challenges that this number provides to the pharmaceutical industry, there is the issue of sequence variation through Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs), some of which may impact upon the way that the body handles drug treatment. This may be due to a direct effect on the binding site of the protein target through non-conservative alterations of the amino acid sequence, or else through indirect effects on drug metabolizing enzymes. In order to meet these challenges, the combination of structural proteomics and computer-aided small molecule design provides opportunities for creating new molecules in silico; these may be designed to bind to selected pharmacogenetic variants of a protein in order to overcome the non-responsiveness of certain patient groups to a particular medicine.

            The prospective participants are requested to submit the extended abstracts on various aspects on the theme of the symposium (not exceeding 250 words) to the organizing secretary on or before February 5th, 2013. The abstract must be sent to dbiconf from gmail.com
