Ringing In New Drug Candidates
Most new drugs are discovered by screening compound collections, or libraries, for worthy candidates. But many such collections consist primarily of molecules that do not possess the structural, stereochemical, and functional complexity equivalent to that of natural products. A new method of constructing natural-product-like compound collections aims to address that deficiency (Nat. Chem., DOI: 10.1038/nchem.1549).
Natural products are among the . . .
