In the medical field, drug-target interactions are very important for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, they also can help researchers predict the link between biomolecules in the biological field, such as drug-protein and protein-target correlations. Therefore, the drug-target research is a very popular study in both the biological and medical fields. However, due to the limitations of manual experiments in the laboratory, computational prediction methods for drug-target relationships are increasingly favored by researchers. In this review, we summarize several computational prediction models of the drug-target connections during the past two years, and briefly introduce their advantages and shortcomings. Finally, several further interesting research directions of drug-target interactions are listed.
Drug-target interaction prediction, computational models, drug discovery, model development, diagnosis, treatment.
