The discovery of such fused domains also offers new perspectives and fresh insights in the determination of gene function. The pharmaceutical industry and biomedical researchers are obviously most interested in genes that play significant roles in the development of disease. As mentioned earlier, differential expression is a valuable approach in identifying genes that behave differently in disease, yet the actual role of that gene in the disease is critical in determining its importance as a potential drug target.

Alignments are scored based on internal strain and overlap of molecular groups. "Chemistry space" can also be used, which assigns values to certain molecular properties and places them as points in a 3D space for each drug. However, as stated earlier, molecules are flexible and multiple conformations might be needed to adequately describe the molecule. Instead of using just the pharmacophore or docking, the structure of the ligand binding site can also be used to identify new potential drug targets.
