Chemists pin hopes on deep learning for drug discovery
A depressing trend looms large for today’s pharmaceutical chemist: For the past 60 years, the cost of developing a new drug—currently about $2.5 billion—has roughly doubled every nine years. Many have placed the blame partly on cheminformatics: Even though lots of time and money have been spent on computationally searching for and docking drugs into proteins and other target molecules, the technique hasn’t lived up to the hype and hasn’t produced a prolific stream of . . .
