autodock - docking of chemical ligands to protein receptors
AutoDock perfoms the automated docking of chemical compounds to proteins, i.e. it predicts how small molecules, such as substrates or drug candidates, bind to a receptor of known 3D structure.
The AutoDockSuite consists of two main programs of which AutoDock performs the docking of the ligand to a set of grids describing the target protein and AutoGrid pre-calculates these grids.
On Debian, the directory /usr/share/doc/autodock offers examples
to run. Change to that directory and unpack (as root) the gzipped map files,
then execute AutoDock as shown below:
autodock4 -p 1pgp.dpf -l /tmp/1pgp.dlg
The interpretation of results is aided by the AutoDockTools suite. Please also inspect the tutorials offered online.
