Computational Approaches and "Free" Resources to Assist Drug Discovery, Chemical Biology & Precision Medicine

  • IF you have no time to read please go to the SHORTLIST page

  • Keywords: in silico drug design, virtual screening, bioinformatics, molecular interactions, ADME-Tox, docking, aa variations, chemical space, QSAR, binding pockets & hot-spots, data mining, big data...

  • Philosophy: Find the tools you need for your project

  • How ? In the section Computational Biology and Chemistry about 2900 tools (online & standalone) & databases/datasets, organized in different tables, collected over a decade that assist drug discovery, chemical biology & research in the field of pathophysiology & precision medicine. Tools are grouped into 3 main categories: Chemoinformatics, Related tools and Bioinformatics. The same software/database can be in different tables. To make it easier, I tend to add tools directly in the shortlist page such as to have all at once even the list starts to be long

  • History: ~400 links were first published by Villoutreix et al. in Curr Protein Pept Sci. 2007, 8:381-411 (I started to collect them for myself in 2002 but thought it could be valuable for other scientists, junior and senior). When this site was launched in 2006, the focus was essentially on Virtual Ligand Screening and structural (3D) bioinformatics, thus the name VLS3D. Since then, some related topics have been added.

Patents, mainly in the field of cancer

I have been working at the interface between molecular medicine (mainly cancer, the complement system and blood coagulation), and structural bioinformatics and chemoinformatics for over 20 years in different countries (mainly USA, Finland, Sweden, France), in the private and academic sectors.

I am research director at the Inserm Institute (the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research is a public scientific and technological institute which operates under the joint authority of the French Ministry of Health and French Ministry of Research) and head of the research unit U973.

I study many undrugged targets and mechanisms such as those involving protein-protein interactions and transient protein-membrane interactions using different types of known and novel in silico approaches, in collaboration with experimental teams located in France and abroad...

Introduction

Consulting

Since 2003, I have been a consultant for biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies as well as for academic research groups and institutes...

Some concepts & tools

In the post-genomic era, informatics technologies play a major role in medical research and pharmaceutical sciences and have become increasingly important in data management, lead-compound identification and in enhancing our understanding of the health and disease states (bioinformatics, chemoinformatics, data mining, dataviz, network...)...

Some Unix tips to manipulate biology and chemistry files

The idea is to have very short scripts or one line codes, very simple ones to perform some simple tasks on chemistry and protein (or other) files
