A matching algorithm using surface complementarity between receptor and ligand protein molecules is outlined. The molecular surfaces are represented by "critical points," describing holes and knobs. Holes (maxima of a shape function) are matched with knobs (minima). This simple and appealing surface representation has been previously described by Connolly(More)
Here, we describe two freely available web servers for molecular docking. The PatchDock method performs structure prediction of protein-protein and protein-small molecule complexes. The SymmDock method predicts the structure of a homomultimer with cyclic symmetry given the structure of the monomeric unit. The inputs to the servers are either protein PDB(More)
Active vision systems, and especially foveated vision systems, depend on efficient attentional mechanisms. We propose that machine visual attention should consist of both high-level, context-dependent components, and low-level, context free components. As a basis for the context-free component, we present an attention operator based on the intuitive notion(More)
Here, we present MultiProt, a fully automated highly efficient technique to detect multiple structural alignments of protein structures. MultiProt finds the common geometrical cores between input molecules. To date, most methods for multiple alignment start from the pairwise alignment solutions. This may lead to a small overall alignment. In contrast, our(More)
Here, we present FireDock, an efficient method for the refinement and rescoring of rigid-body docking solutions. The refinement process consists of two main steps: (1) rearrangement of the interface side-chains and (2) adjustment of the relative orientation of the molecules. Our method accounts for the observation that most interface residues that are(More)
The docking field has come of age. The time is ripe to present the principles of docking, reviewing the current state of the field. Two reasons are largely responsible for the maturity of the computational docking area. First, the early optimism that the very presence of the "correct" native conformation within the list of predicted docked conformations(More)
