In recent years molecular modeling has emerged as one of the most versatile tool for drug discovery. The In-silico processes not only provide valuable information about interactions between a target protein and a ligand but also accelerate the rate of lead identification. In addition to pharmacodynamic applications, molecular modeling is of paramount importance in determining the pharmacokinetic fate of lead compound also. A wide range of approaches are now available that varies in their computational demand, accuracy and scale of application. Prompted by the successful application of computational drug design in lead identification we have made an effort to identify novel, structurally diverse and druggable anti-leishmanial, anti-malarial and other diseases compounds through pharmacophore based virtual screening.
