What is Drug Discovery Hackathon?
In-Silico Drug Discovery
It will primarily focus on computational aspects of drug discovery and will have three Tracks.
Track-1 will deal with computational modelling for drug design or identifying ‘lead’ compounds from existing databases that may have the potential to inhibit SARS-CoV-2.
Track-2 will encourage participants to develop new tools and algorithms using data analytics and AI/ML approach for predicting drug-like compounds with minimal toxicity and maximal specificity and selectivity.
Track 3 will only deal with novel and out-of-the-box ideas in this field.
Participants will submit their ideas online after which the CSIR and other labs will work towards executing them.
