Artificial intelligence predicts RNA and DNA binding sites to speed up drug discovery

Researchers developed an artificial intelligence-driven solution that uses data on the structure of RNA or DNA molecules to identify sites on them where interaction with potential drug candidates can occur. Knowledge of these binding sites allows pharmaceutical companies to discover new medications - including antiviral agents - in a much more focused and efficient manner.
