The term coined in 1989 as an analogy to in vitro and in vivo
1. In Latin means “within the silicon” (silicon refers to computers)
2. In silico experiment involves the experimentation using computer or via computer simulation
Example: Use of three dimensional protein structure for drug designing, sequence analysis using some software.
