In search of modern ways to increase secondary metabolites production in plants, implement genetic engineering, and produce green pollution-free medicinal plants, modern computer-based techniques must be regarded. The introduction of Computer Aided Drug Discovery (CADD), in particular in-silico molecular modeling protocols have become indispensable for the study of macromolecular structures and interactions. In addition, the application of chemometric techniques allowed the analysis of multivariate data. Molecular pharmacognosy has been also introduced to carry the traditional pharmacognosy mission into a molecular level.
