Protein-protein interactions are central to almost all biological functions, and the atomic details of such interactions can yield insights into the mechanisms that underlie these functions. We present a web server that wraps and extends the SwarmDock flexible protein-protein docking algorithm. After uploading PDB files of the binding partners, the server(More)
We present an updated and integrated version of our widely used protein-protein docking and binding affinity benchmarks. The benchmarks consist of non-redundant, high-quality structures of protein-protein complexes along with the unbound structures of their components. Fifty-five new complexes were added to the docking benchmark, 35 of which have(More)
In previous CAPRI rounds (3-5) we showed that using MD-generated ensembles, as inputs for a rigid-body docking algorithm, increased our success rate, especially for targets exhibiting substantial amounts of induced fit. In recent rounds (6-11), our cross-docking was followed by a short MD-based local refinement for the subset of solutions with the lowest(More)
Within the crowded, seemingly chaotic environment of the cell, proteins are still able to find their binding partners. This is achieved via an ensemble of trajectories, which funnel them towards their functional binding sites, the binding funnel. Here, we characterize funnel-like energy structures on the global energy landscape using time-homogeneous finite(More)
Reliable identification of near-native poses of docked protein-protein complexes is still an unsolved problem. The intrinsic heterogeneity of protein-protein interactions is challenging for traditional biophysical or knowledge based potentials and the identification of many false positive binding sites is not unusual. Often, ranking protocols are based on(More)
We present optimisations applied to a bespoke bio-physical molecular dynamics simulation designed to investigate chromosome condensation. Our primary focus is on domain-specific algorithmic improvements to determining short-range interaction forces between particles, as certain qualities of the simulation render traditional methods less effective. We(More)
