## Computational Determination of Protein-Ligand Binding Specificity

##### Abstract:

I will discuss the computational methods based on a continuum solvent model to calculate binding affinity for protein-ligand systems. I will also show how such models can be combined with statistical learning methods to predict binding specificity of protein recognition. An application of these methods to understand drug resistance will exemplify its usefulness in drug development.
