We have performed a comparative assessment of several programs for flexible molecular docking: DOCK 4.0, FlexX 1.8, AutoDock 3.0, GOLD 1.2 and ICM 2.8. This was accomplished using two different studies: docking experiments on a data set of 37 protein–ligand complexes and screening a library containing 10,037 entries against 11 different proteins. The docking accuracy of the methods was judged based on the corresponding rank-one solutions. We have found that the fraction of molecules docked with… Expand
Comparative Data on Docking Algorithms : Keeping the Update in the Field Knowledge
Two docking programs FlexX and GOLD that can be used for either single-ligand docking or database screening have been compared for their propensity to recover the X-ray pose of 153 pharmaceuticallyExpand
Evaluation of the performance of four molecular docking programs on a diverse set of protein‐ligand complexes
TLDR
An extensive evaluation of four popular commercial molecular docking programs, including Glide, GOLD, LigandFit, and Surflex, indicates that these programs are less capable to handle really flexible ligands and relatively flat binding sites, and they have different preferences to hydrophilic/hydrophobic binding sites.

Comparative Study of the Efficiency of Three Protein-Ligand Docking Programs
TLDR
The Autodock methodology is shown to consistently yield enrichments superior to the two alternative methods, while FlexX outperforms largely Arguslab. Expand
Comparison of Several Molecular Docking Programs: Pose Prediction and Virtual Screening Accuracy
TLDR
Cognate ligand docking to 68 diverse, high-resolution X-ray complexes revealed that ICM, GLIDE, and Surflex generated ligand poses close to the X-rays conformation more often than the other docking programs. Expand
Detailed Comparison of the Protein-Ligand Docking Efficiencies of GOLD, a Commercial Package and ArgusLab, a Licensable Freeware
TLDR
The study revealed that the commercial package outperforms the freely available docking engine in almost all the parameters tested, however, the study also revealed that although lagging behind in accuracy, results from ArgusLab are biologically meaningful. Expand
On Evaluating Molecular-Docking Methods for Pose Prediction and Enrichment Factors
TLDR
Four of the most well-known, commercially available docking programs, FlexX, GOLD, GLIDE, and ICM, have been examined for their ligand-docking and virtual-screening capabilities and the capability of the four programs to correctly rank-order target-specific active compounds over alternative binders and nonbinders and thereby enrich a small subset of a screening library is compared.

Docking Ligands into Flexible and Solvated Macromolecules. 3. Impact of Input Ligand Conformation, Protein Flexibility, and Water Molecules on the Accuracy of Docking Programs
TLDR
It is demonstrated that protein flexibility, displaceable water molecules, and ring conformational search algorithms, three of the main Fitted features, significantly increased its accuracy and proposed potential modifications to the available programs to further improve their accuracy in binding mode prediction.

Can we trust docking results? Evaluation of seven commonly used programs on PDBbind database
TLDR
This work is the first large‐scale docking evaluation that covers both aspects of docking programs, that is, predicting ligand conformation and calculating the strength of its binding, and observed the lack of universal scoring function for all types of molecules and protein families. Expand
EADock: Docking of small molecules into protein active sites with a multiobjective evolutionary optimization
TLDR
The ability of EADock to accurately predict binding modes on a real application was illustrated by the successful docking of the RGD cyclic pentapeptide on the αVβ3 integrin, starting far away from the binding pocket. Expand
Recipes for the Selection of Experimental Protein Conformations for Virtual Screening
TLDR
It is found that the conformers cocrystallized with the largest ligands displayed high selectivity for binders, and when combined in ensembles they consistently provided better results than randomly chosen protein conformations. Expand

GOLD (Genetic Optimisation for Ligand Docking) is an automated ligand docking program that uses a genetic algorithm to explore the full range of ligand conformational flexibility with partial flexibility of the protein, and satisfies the fundamental requirement that the ligand must displace loosely bound water on binding.
