Hi Oshik

SDF is a widely used format created by MDL. Most supplier catalogs come in
(2D) SD format, for example. ZINC SDF are 3D. SDF may contain tagged data
fields in addition to the coordinates. SMILES is a linear notation created
by Daylight. It only implies 3D structure. Both SMILES and SDF are widely
used and supported in the computational drug design field, as is mol2.
Flexibase is a format created by Dave Lorber and Brian Shoichet in this lab
for virtual screening. It is only ready by our program, DOCK3.5.54, so far,
although there are plans afoot to have other programs read it.

Hope this helps.
