Current developments in and importance of high-performance computing in drug discovery

Abstract

A number of current trends that are being adopted to reshape the field of high-performance computing exist, including multi-core systems, accelerators, and software frameworks for large-scale intrinsically parallel applications. These trends intersect with recent developments in computational chemistry to provide new capabilities for computer-aided drug discovery. Although this review focuses primarily on the application domains of molecular modeling and biomolecular simulation, these computing changes are relevant for other computationally intensive tasks, such as instrument data processing and chemoinformatics. © Thomson Reuters (Scientific) Ltd.
