Proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Chemical Structures

Edited by Gerard van Westen (Leiden University, The Netherlands) and Markus Wagener (Grünenthal, Germany)

The 11th International Conference on Chemical Structures (ICCS 2018) took playce on May 27-31, 2018. Building on past successes of this well-known conference series, the 2018 event offered a strong scientific program covering all aspects of cheminformatics, molecular modeling and computer-aided drug design. For this international event, the organizers sought oral and poster presentations of novel research and emerging technologies for the plenary sessions on the topics Cheminformatics Methods, Structure-Activity and Structure-Property Prediction, Structure-Based Drug Design and Virtual Screening, Analysis of Large Chemical Data Sets, Integration of Chemical Information, and Dealing with Biological Complexity.

New articles in the collection will be added here as they are published.

  1. Analysis of compound–protein interactions (CPIs) has become a crucial prerequisite for drug discovery and drug repositioning. In vitro experiments are commonly used in identifying CPIs, but it is not feasible ...

  3. Docking is commonly used in drug discovery to predict how ligand binds to protein target. Best programs are generally able to generate a correct solution, yet often fail to identify it. In the case of drug-lik...

  4. Sodium-dependent glucose co-transporter 1 (SGLT1) is a solute carrier responsible for active glucose absorption. SGLT1 is present in both the renal tubules and small intestine. In contrast, the closely related...
