Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus
(SARS-CoV) is the etiological agent of SARS disease,
which has ever severely menaced humans from the end
of 2002 to June 2003. To date, great efforts have been
made for the discovery of therapeutic compounds by
using various technologies. In this report, we present a
survey of these techniques and their applications in the
development of promising anti-SARS agents.
