AutoDock 4.0 is released under GNU GPL

Date: 19 November 2007

News. AutoDock, the most cited docking software, is released under GNU GPL. This change occurs in version 4, released on May 7, 2007.

AutoDock. AutoDock is a suite of automated docking tools. It is designed to predict how small molecules, such as substrates or drug candidates, bind to a receptor of known 3D structure.

AutoDock actually consists of two main programs:
- AutoDock performs the docking of the ligand to a set of grids describing the target protein
- AutoGrid pre-calculates these grids

In addition to using them for docking, the atomic affinity grids can be visualised. This can help, for example, to guide organic synthetic chemists design better binders.

A graphical user interface called AutoDockTools (ADT) is also available. It can be used to setup the docking experiment. Some parts of ADT are not released under GNU GPL.
