OpenDiscovery

Introduction

Open Discovery is a suite of programs that use Open Source or freely available tools to dock a library of chemical compounds against a receptor protein. In a paper in the Journal of Chemical Education, we outline the usefulness of having an uncomplicated, free-to-use protocol to accomplish a task that has been the subject of academic and commercial interest for decades [1]. We also highlight the gaps in open source tools around preparing protein - ligand complexes for molecular simulation, an area we expect to develop in the future.

Requirements
