In the last years important scientific results have been obtained thanks to the application of approaches and techniques coming from the most diverse branches of science, sometimes very far from each other. This is particularly true for the biological sciences, in which, for example, the use of computational techniques to support experimental data, and vice versa, has been a fruitful strategy in a large number of studies.
In the last decades a big effort has been dedicated in the development of computational techniques more and more complex and accurate to be used in fields such as chemistry or biology. This has been done in order to
increase the robustness of the results and the predictions. The growing technical improvement is, without any doubt, useful for the entire scientific community but, nonetheless, the choice of a particular technique, among
those already existing, to be applied to the biological system under study is equally important.
A series of example of how the application of simple techniques, such as molecular docking or molecular dynamics simulation, in combination with experimental approaches, brought to the acquisition of important biological
results will be the topic of this talk.
