Annotation and classification of biological space in chemogenomics

  • Jordi Mestres


A large majority of current drugs have bioactivity due to their binding to a protein, without practically exploiting any of the three other types of macromolecule within biological systems: polysaccharides, lipids and nucleic acids. It is therefore very limited today to discuss targets in general for which we can develop molecules with properties close to those of drugs.
