Welcome to QuickVina

This is the source code repository and the temporary website for both QuickVina 2 and QuickVina-W, until I release a new version and build new nice website The new site is coming sooo soon. Stay tuned. :-)

There are two tools to use

QuickVina 2

Accurately speed up AutoDock Vina, the famous molecular docking tool.

Quick Vina 2 is a fast and accurate molecular docking tool, attained at accurately accelerating AutoDock Vina. It was tested against 195 protein–ligand complexes that compose the core set of the 2014 release of the PDBbind using default exhaustiveness level of 8, QVina 2 successfully attained up to 20.49-fold acceleration over Vina. The Pearson’s correlation coefficient between Vina’s QVina 2’s binding energy was 0.967 for the first predicted mode and 0.911 for the sum of all predicted modes.

It is also witnessed that QVina 2 is more accurate than GOLD 5.2 and is only slightly less accurate than Dock 6.6. This shows that QVina 2 has paved the way for some high-throughput and sufficiently accurate virtual screening of molecular libraries. This in turn brings great value to the fragment-based computer-aided drug design.

Adding the ability of Blind Docking to QuickVina 2.

QuickVina-W is faster than QuickVina 2 and more accurate than AutoDock Vina.

important note:

  • If you Don't know the Docking site, then QuickVina-W is your choice with ability to dock WIDE search box.
  • However if you know the target search box, we recommend that you use QuickVina 2.
