1) Distribution of AutoDock4 is moving ahead!  We have received permission from the Scripps Technology Development Office to distribute AutoDock4 under the Gnu GPL Open Source License.  We are now in the process of establishing a web-based download protocol , and are hopeful that everything will be ready  within a week or so.  There will be an announcement on this page, when AutoDock4 will be made available.  In the meantime, we appreciate your patience.

2) AutoDock futures.  We are now in the process of preparing our proposal to the NIH to renew our AutoDock Development and Maintenance Grant.  This grant supports almost all of the work that is done in the lab on the AutoDock code and its software environment. As users of the AutoDock code I would like to get your input on features that you would like to see both in the docking code itself, and in the environment surrounding its use, analysis of results, visualization, documentation and training.  You can respond to the AutoDock mailing list or directly to me :  olson at

Thank you for your interest and support of AutoDock.
