[Dock-fans] Only rescore, energy C6, C12

Hi Vaclav,

In order to compute the score of the ligand alone, you will have to choose
"no" for both "orient_ligand" and "flexible_ligand", and "yes" for
"score_molecules". If you choose to use the "continuous_score_primary"
scoring function, then the only input needed are mol2 files of the ligand
and receptor (both with hydrogens and charges added). An example of the
input file needed for that calculation, compatible with DOCK 6.6, is below.
If you want to do a more advanced calculation, consider setting both
"flexible_ligand" and "minimize_ligand" to "yes". This will likely yield a
lower overall energy.

I'm not sure what you mean by your second question. Are C6 and C12
individual atoms in the ligand?

Be sure to change the contents of this input file to match your file names
and locations. Then execute dock by:

    $ dock6 -i dock.in -o dock.out
