The article reviews the different approaches used in computer aided molecular design. It also reviews current achievements in the field of chemo-informatics and their impact on modern drug discovery processes. The main data mining approaches used in chemo-informatics such as structural similarity matrices, and classification algorithms, are also outlined. In the conclusion, future prospects of chemo-informatics are also mentioned.


Computer aided molecular design, chemo-informatics, drug discovery, combinatorial chemistry.
