Fully Flexible Docking of Medium Sized Ligand Libraries with RosettaLigand

PLoS One
PMCID: 4514752
PMID: 26207742
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0132508

[…] ight, Van Der Waals (VDW) volume and surface area, and girth. Girth is computed as the longest distance between any pair of atoms in the small molecule. All ligand descriptors were computed using the BioChemical Library (BCL). Additionally plots the distribution of several protein/ligand pair descriptors using the native experimental structure. Specifically, the ratio of Rosetta binding energy to […]
