Efficient and sufficient incorporation of protein flexibility into docking is still a challenging task. Docking to an ensemble of protein structures has proven its utility for docking, but using a large ensemble of structures can reduce the efficiency of docking and can increase the number of false positives in virtual screening. In this paper, we describe(More)
The efficient and accurate quantification of protein-ligand interactions using computational methods is still a challenging task. Two factors strongly contribute to the failure of docking methods to predict free energies of binding accurately: the insufficient incorporation of protein flexibility coupled to ligand binding and the neglected dynamics of the(More)
Docking methods are popular computational techniques in drug discovery to identify new active molecules that bind to a given biological target. Although widely used, the predictive reliability of docking methods is often limited by the inability to accurately and efficiently model protein flexibility and quantify binding strength. We highlight several(More)
