Molecular docking is an invaluable tool in modern drug discovery. This review focuses on methodological developments relevant to the field of molecular docking. The forces important in molecular recognition are reviewed and followed by a discussion of how different scoring functions account for these forces. More recent applications of computational chemistry tools involve library design and database screening. Last, we summarize several critical methodological issues that must be addressed in future developments.
