This involves using data on three-dimensional (3D) protein structure, coupled with knowledge of the physicochemical properties of amino acids, to determine if the amino acid sequence is likely to fold in the same way as a sequence for which the structure is known. In this way, more information about the putative target protein can be assessed. 4 TARGET VALIDATION Once a potential disease-causing target has been identified, a process of validation is carried out to confirm the functions and effects of the target.

The current method of drug discovery commences with the study of how the body functions, in both normal and abnormal cases afflicted with diseases. The aim is to break down the disease process into cellular and molecular levels. An understanding of the status of genes and their associated proteins would help to pinpoint the cause of the disease. Drugs can be tailor-made to attack the “epicenter” of diseases. 2) drugs can be discovered and manufactured to intervene or restore the cellular or molecular dysfunction.
