The purpose of this tutorial is to provide members of the Rizzo lab a way to benchmark the AutoDock4 software to compare the Pose Reproduction success rates against the DOCK6 software. (Note: The program version used for this experiment was AutoDock4.2.6 and DOCK6.9
DOCK6 is a commonly used docking protocol which assess the affinity of a ligand, a drug candidate to a target site (Protein, Enzyme, RNA). To evaluate a software's ability to accurately reproduce experimental results, an experiment called Pose Reproduction.
Pose Reproduction used an experimental known ligand and protein complex from the PDB database and attempts to dock this ligand back into it's original location. If the lowest energy ligand(most energetically favorable) is within 2.0 RMSDh of the original target site, this is referred to as a docking success. If any of the ligands, but not the lowest energy ligand is within 2.0 RMSDh of the original target site, this is referred to as a scoring failure. If none of the ligands are within 2.0 RMSDh of the original target site this is referred to as a sampling failure.
First step is prepare a file with a list of systems within it. For this docking experiment this file was called clean.systems.all
121P 181L 182L 183L 184L etc
Second step run the run.000.AutoDock.source.sh script to prepare a directory for each system in the file. The 1st arguement is the list of systems file made in the previous step. The 2nd Arguement is the new directory that will be made where all the AutoDock4 experiments will be performed
bash ./run.000.AutoDock.source.sh ../clean.systems.all AutoDock4_Tutorial
The directory where all the directories will be formed is
Each System will have it's own directory in this file
AutoDock4_Tutorial/121P/ AutoDock4_Tutorial/181L/ AutoDock4_Tutorial/182L/ etc
