Epi-Informatics: Discovery and Development of Small Molecule Epigenetic Drugs and Probes features multidisciplinary strategies with strong computational approaches that have led to the successful discovery and/or optimization of compounds that act as modulators of epigenetic targets. This book is intended for all those using or wanting to learn more about computational methodologies in epigenetic drug discovery, including molecular modelers, informaticians, pharmaceutical scientists, and medicinal chemists. 

Key Features

  • Focuses on the discovery of epi-drugs as candidates to be used in therapy including combined therapies
  • Describes new computational methodologies and screening assays utilizing recent and emerging novel structural data
  • Highlights the discovery, development and optimization of epi-probes, which are molecular probes that elucidate epigenetic mechanisms
  • Includes important topics such as computational-guided optimization of epi-hits, virtual screening to identify novel compounds for epigenetic targets, development and mining of epigenetic molecular databases, SAR modeling of screening data and much more


Pharmaceutical scientists, medicinal chemists, modelers and informaticians, biological scientists working with epigenetics in industry, academia, and non-for profit organizations working on drug discovery of epi-drugs, as well as graduate students in courses related to epigenetics, drug discovery and development, computer-aided drug design and cancer biology
