Finding novel lead compounds in pesticide discovery inspired by pharma research

The use of high throughput (HTP) methodologies for supporting discovery and development of new agrochemical products opens up new opportunities to test many new compounds potentially acting on biological targets in various organisms. Finding new lead compounds which might act as a new pesticide can sometimes be a lengthy process; we present a method which can provide lead compounds by using the breath of information available from pharmaceutical research.

This webinar will give an overview of the chemical and biological informatics methods and data used to map compounds active against biological targets in parasites in humans to fungal targets. The webinar will then also explore how to arrive at insights in structure activity relationships and freedom to operate in the chemical space for these candidate compounds. Thereby demonstrating how findings from pharmaceutical research can be transferred to fungal research.
