Data Mining and Drug Discovery

Shivani Sharma


Today, drug discovery makes use of cheminformatics research to overcome the drawbacks and shortcomings of traditional drug discovery procedure. Cheminformatics utilizes computer information technology to solve and answer the wide range of queries and problems in the field of chemistry. With the aid of data mining, data is collected relating chemical structures to each other. This has proven beneficial in the area of drug discovery and designing. Here, in this short communication, the use of data mining in context to drug discovery and its step-by-step procedure is briefed.
