Dock6 installation on Ubuntu Linux

What is DOCK? DOCK addresses the problem of "docking" molecules to each other. In general, "docking" is the identification of the low-energy binding modes of a small molecule, or ligand, within the active site of a macromolecule, or receptor, whose structure is known. A compound that interacts strongly with, or binds, a receptor associated with a disease may inhibit its function and thus act as a drug. Solving the docking problem computationally requires an accurate representation of the molecular energetics as well as an efficient algorithm to search the potential binding modes. Installation procedure Download DOCK 6 from the official UCSF DOCK web-site and build source like this. ######################################################### ######################################################### # Compilation procedure for Dock 6.4 on Ubuntu Linux # # Date: 2010.12.19 # # Additional docs (where search for solutions): # http://dock.compbio.ucsf.edu/DOC…
