Abstract

The development of new drugs with potential therapeutic applications is one of the most complex and difficult in the discovery of new drugs. Discovery new drug candidate compounds also require millions of dollars and takes many years to become a new drug that is ready to be marketed. One of the main challenges facing researchers in drug discovery is the need for data access and the need for massive computing power in a collaborative environment. Grid techniques can present an architectural framework that aims to provide access to heterogeneous resources in a way that is secure, reliable and scalable. Computer grid technology provides innovative infrastructure for the application of scientific and industrial complex in the field of search research and drug design. In this review, we discuss the application of computer grid technology for drug discovery, which is accompanied by an overview of computer grid architecture for drug discovery.
