Abstract
Traditional drug designing utilizing conventional methods is considered to be an exorbitant and time-consuming process. CADD was introduced as an effective method which has enormously increased and economized the drug designing and development process utilizing computational methodologies. CADD can be achieved by ligand-based drug designing (LBDD) and structure-based drug designing (SBDD). It has reduced the time required for a drug to move from its initial stages to the market by utilizing CADD process and its respective methodologies in comparison with the traditional drug designing. In this review, we've discussed the most cited computational tools for 3D structure prediction of target protein along with the tools and scoring techniques to scrutinize molecular docking of target and ligand complex, to achieve novel drugs centered on structure of biological target.
