Molecular Docking Training & Certification is a self-learning course designed to learn various types of docking. Molecular docking studies are used to determine the interaction of two molecules and to find the best orientation of ligand, which would form a complex with overall minimum energy. It is a vital tool in structural molecular biology and CADD that is computer-assisted drug design and successful docking methods search high-dimensional spaces effectively and use a scoring function that correctly ranks candidate dockings.
With the successful launch of the first course in the series of add on courses, Biotecnika will be announcing the next course, which is on Molecular docking.
Molecular docking has become an essential tool after the completion of the human genome project, which has resulted in an increasing number of research activities in that field.
So what is Molecular docking???
Molecular docking means the interaction between a small molecule and a protein at the atomic level, which allows us to characterize the behavior of small particles in the binding site of target proteins as well as to elucidate fundamental biochemical processes. The docking process involves two necessary steps: prediction of the ligand conformation as well as its position and orientation within these sites (usually referred to as pose) and assessment of the binding affinity. The completion of the human genome project and the generation of experimentally solved (X-ray crystallography and NMR techniques) protein structure has resulted in an increasing number of new therapeutic targets for drug discovery.
The advancements in drug discovery lead us to virtual screening/ High throughput screening. A virtual screening approach means we can simultaneously dock thousands/millions of small molecules to find a lead molecule. There are two different types of virtual screening available, i.e. Structure-based virtual screening and ligand-based virtual screening. Structure-based virtual screening means when the established/experimentally solved three-dimensional structural is there, then a large number of small molecules can act against those targets. When a set of active ligand molecules is known, and little or no structural information is available for targets, the ligand-based methods, such as pharmacophore modeling and quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) methods, can be employed. In recent years combinatorial library-based screening is also available for successful drug discovery.
Molecular docking is of different types as follows: Protein-Protein docking, Protein-Ligand docking, Rigid ligand, and rigid receptor docking, Flexible ligand and rigid receptor docking, Flexible ligand and flexible receptor docking, Local move monte Carlo sampling.
Docking programs based on different algorithms were developed to perform molecular docking studies, which have made docking an increasingly important tool in pharmaceutical research. The various algorithms used in multiple docking programs such as Matching algorithm, MCSS, LVDI, Incremental construction, and Monte Carlo, etc. The scoring function is vital for each application in docking. Computational approaches show that they have the power to screen hits from a vast database and design novel small molecules. Proper, as well as low computational cost scoring functions, may bring docking application to a new stage.
Commonly used Protein-Ligand Docking & Virtual screening software
