Flexible protein-protein docking with SwarmDock
The atomic structures of protein complexes can provide useful information for drug design, protein engineering, systems biology, and understanding pathology. Obtaining this information experimentally can be challenging. However, if the structures of the subunits are known, then it is often possible to model the complex computationally. This chapter provide practical guidelines for docking proteins using the SwarmDock flexible protein-protein docking method, providing an overview of the factors that need to be considered when deciding whether docking is likely to be successful, the preparation of structural input, generation of docked poses, analysis and ranking of docked poses, and the validation of models using external data.
