Designing new chemical compounds with desired pharmaceutical properties is a challenging task and takes years of development and testing. Still, a majority of new drugs fail to prove efficient. Recent success of deep generative modeling holds promises of generation and optimization of new molecules. In this review paper, we provide an overview of the current generative models, and describe necessary biological and chemical terminology, including molecular representations needed to understand

Finally, we summarize the current state of generative modeling for drug design and drug response prediction, highlighting the state-of-art approaches and limitations the field is currently facing.
