A message from Prof. Arthur J. Olson.

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 scripps.edu
Thank you for your interest and support of AutoDock.
