This looks like an inventive use of molecular modelling, but don't get excited too soon. There are inherent limitations to this technology.

The raw data used to construct a virtual image of the active site of the enzyme is obtained by x-ray crystallography.
This means that the enzyme has to be isolated and crystallised (a VERY difficult feat). X-rays are then bounced off the crystal, the data collected and a virtual image constructed.

The limitation is that the enzyme is distorted to a certain extent by being in crystalline form. It's not in exactly the same shape as it would be in nature.

It's a very useful tool, but that's it. You're not going to be able to just model in chemical structures and hey presto they do what you want biologically..
