Abstract: Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has been used in the treatment of a variety of diseases and is recognized as a valuable alternative to conventional medicine. In this work, several computer-based methods are employed to study TCM. Firstly, we developed a new database, Traditional Chinese Medicine Information Database TCMID, to provide, in an integrated manner, comprehensive information about all aspects of TCM including prescription formula, constituent herbs, known herbal ingredients and their molecular actions. Secondly, the principle of TCM prescription formulation was studied by a statistical method, Support Vector Machine (SVM). The results indicate the ability of SVM on recognition of effective TCM formulas. Thirdly, we studied medicinal herbs by a ligand-protein inverse-docking program INVDOCK. The results show the potential of this approach in exploration of the molecular mechanism of medicinal herbs.
