CHI's 13th Annual Structure-Based Drug Design Conference - Overview

CHI's 13th Annual Structure-Based Drug Design Conference - Overview

At CHI/Bio-IT World's thirteenth annual Structure-Based Drug Design conference, you will hear
about developments in insilico technology, as well as experimental approaches useful for accurately
predicting and modeling the structures of proteins in structure-based drug design efforts. In addition,
examples of successful applications of such technology approaches to genome-to-drug lead
investigations will be addressed.
