A User guides on the various software's used for drug discovery and development

Author(s): Pallavi Bhosle*, Sachin Dhawale and Shailesh Wadher

Network pharmacology and molecular dynamics (MD) simulations are computational methods that have gained significant attention in the field of drug discovery and development. In network pharmacology, software tools are used to identify and analyze complex interactions among biological molecules in a network, including proteins, genes, and metabolites. This approach enables researchers to predict potential drug targets and assess the efficacy and safety of drug candidates. On the other hand, MD simulations use computer algorithms to simulate the behavior of atoms and molecules over time, providing detailed information about their physical and chemical properties. This method allows researchers to explore the dynamic behavior of biological molecules and interactions with drug candidates, which can facilitate the design of more effective and efficient drugs. Several software tools are available for network pharmacology and MD simulations, these tools are designed to handle large-scale data analysis and simulation, providing users with a range of analytical and visualization capabilities. The use of network pharmacology and MD simulations in drug discovery and development has significantly accelerated the process of identifying new drug targets, designing more potent and selective drugs, and optimizing drug efficacy and safety. By utilizing these computational methods, researchers can screen and prioritize large numbers of drug candidates in a cost-effective and time-efficient manner, ultimately leading to the development of more effective therapies for a wide range of diseases. Hence this review gives an idea about different software used in network pharmacology and the MD simulation with proper guidance on the way of handling the software.
