Protein-ligand binding free energy is fundamental to evaluate the affinity of a small molecule for its biological counterpart. Binding kinetics has recently emerged as a key factor influencing in vivo drug efficacy. By means of molecular dynamics simulations and enhanced sampling methods, we can try to estimate protein-ligand binding free energy and kinetics.
