2019 DOCK tutorial 1 with PDBID 2BXF
This tutorial contains a step by step approach to dock a known ligand to a known receptor.
DOCK is a molecular docking software that was originally developed at UCSF by Dr. Irwin Kuntz, Dr. Brian Shoicket, and colleagues. DOCK is used in drug discovery and molecular modeling. It consists of 2 main components: a search algorithm to explore chemical space for conformations and a scoring function to rank the results.
The tutorial will be based on the PDB file 2BXF downloaded from the PDB Database. 2BXF is the crystal structure for human serum albumin complexed with diazepam.
