Drug design through computer, a recent, very effective technique in modern era. Now a day’s Computer Aided Drug Design (CADD) technologies are used in nanotechnology, biochemistry, molecular biology. The main benefit of the CADD is cost effective in research and development of drugs. There are wide range of software’s are used in CADD. There are different techniques used in CADD visualization, homology, molecular dynamics, energy minimization molecular docking, QSAR etc., Computer aided drug design is applicable in cancer diseases, transportation of drug to specific site in body, data collections and storages of organic and biological. Conformational properties and energetic of small molecules and DNA cleavage are widely used this technique for the development of this technique.
