Thesis title: “Development of a molecular virtual screening methodology using molecular descriptors and Ensemble-based docking”

Brief Synopsis of Research:

We aim to test and design a structure-based virtual screening pipeline, combing target molecular dynamics simulation in mixed solvents, conformational selection, ensemble-based docking, and receptor dependent- 4D QSAR approaches.
