DOCK 3.7 is available at It is the latest version in the DOCK 3 series of docking programs developed and used by the Shoichet Lab. To cite the DOCK 3.7 paper, please use Coleman, Carchia, Sterling, Irwin & Shoichet, PLOS ONE 2013. DOCK 3.7 is written in Fortran and some C. It is an update of DOCK 3.6 with many improved features. DOCK 3.7 comes with all the tools necessary to prepare a protein for docking, written in a variety of languages. It comes with some tools

necessary to build ligands, though some tools are under commercial/free academi

c license that must be obtained externally. It uses new Flexibase/DB2 files found on ZINC (eventually). It includes tools to prepare receptors, written in a variety of languages, and several auxillary scripts written in Python.

Previous verisons

DOCK 3.7 is part of the DOCK 3 series. However, it differs substantially from its immediate predecessor DOCK 3.6. Importantly, DOCK 3.6 uses a different format of database files that cannot be read by DOCK 3.7 and vice versa.
