Online resources supporting drug discovery


Online resources enabling and supporting drug discovery have blossomed during the past ten years. However, drug hunters commonly find themselves overwhelmed by the proliferation of these computer-based resources. Ten years ago, we, the authors of this review, felt that a comprehensive list of in silico resources relating to drug discovery was needed. Especially because the internet provides a wealth of inspiring tools that, if fully exploited, could greatly assist the process. We present here a compilation of online tools and databases collected over the past decade. The tools were essentially found through literature and internet searches and, currently, our list contains over 1500 URLs. We also briefly highlight some recently reported services and comment about ongoing and future efforts in the field.
