The course describes advanced SBDD workflows in drug discovery projects and encompasses a range of topics from pharmacophore query generation to protein-ligand interaction fingerprints. More specifically, the course will cover the application of pharmacophores in the context of protein-ligand docking, scaffold replacement and R-group screening. A method for querying a 3D project database will also be presented along with the generation and analysis of protein- ligand interaction fingerprints (PLIF).
Antibody Modeling and Protein Engineering
Protein Engineering / Protein Properties / Developability / Hot Spot Analysis / Antibody Modeling / Humanization / Molecular Surfaces
The course covers approaches for structure-based antibody design and includes protein-protein interactions analysis, in silico protein engineering, affinity modeling and antibody homology modeling. The interaction of a co-crystallized antibody-antigen complex will be studied by generating and examining molecular surfaces and visualizing protein-protein contacts in 3D. Antibody properties will be evaluated using specialized calculated protein property descriptors and analyzing protein patches. The application of protein engineering tools for affinity and property optimization of antibodies in the context of developability will be studied. Antibody homology modeling optimization examples will include identification of glycosylation sites and their selective modification using a specialized MOE Project antibody database. All the steps necessary for high throughput antibody homology modeling workflow from sequence to structure to property calculations for developability analysis will be described.
