Abstract :

Driven by a steady improvement of computational hardware and significant progress in ab initio method development, quantum-mechanical approaches can now be applied to large biochemical systems and drug design. We present the methods implemented in GAMESS, which can be used for drug research. An emphasis is put on the linearly scaling quantum chemistry method called fragment molecular orbital (FMO). We demonstrate use of FMO in the protein-ligand binding, structure-activity relationship studies, fragment- and structure-based drug design in detail.
