Diabetes mellitus, a chronic disorder which affects people of all ages mainly due to improper food habits, lack of exercise etc. It is difficult to analyze the root cause of this disorder. Laboratory work consumes time and as well requires animal models in order to arrive at good results. Bioinformatics has extended a helping hand through molecular docking for the drug candidate to identify and also to dock with the protein targets related to various diseases. This review paper insights about
