Raccoon | AutoDock

Raccoon is a graphical interface for preparing AutoDock virtual screenings.


Raccoon automates some of the most common operations performed when preparing a virtual screening:

  • automatic processing of ligand libraries (PDB, MOL2, PDBQT)
  • split multi-structure files (MOL2)
  • generate PDBQT input files
  • multiple receptor conformations
  • flexible residues
  • filter ligands
  • generate configuration files for both AutoGrid and AutoDock.
  • generate scripts for running the virtual screening.

Virtual screenings can be generated for workstations and PBS Linux clusters.
