F@H article

This is a rather interesting article:

Tidbit:
The method would not just speed up drug development but also could change it fundamentally. Pande said chemists are reluctant to test molecules that are hard to synthesize, but "one of the beautiful things about computational functions is that the synthesis is trivial. And so we can do the hard work – we can study the things that would be hard to investigate just synthetically and then make suggestions for which ones should be followed up. I think it may open the door to a new range of therapeutics that we just can't access very readily right now."
