BETSY: A new backward-chaining expert system for automated development of pipelines in Bioinformatics

in Algorithms/Bioinformatics Programming/Softwares by

Bioinformatics analyses have become long and difficult as it involves a large number of steps implemented for data processing. Bioinformatics pipelines are developed to make this process easier, which on one hand automate a specific analysis, while on the other hand, are still limited for investigative analyses requiring changes to the parameters used in the process.

Raccoon2: A GUI facilitating virtual screenings with Autodock and Autodock Vina

in Bioinformatics Programming/Docking/Drug Discovery by

In the previous article, a new plugin called ‘Raccoon’ was mentioned, which helps in preparing virtual screening using Autodock. It provides a simple graphical user interface (GUI) where you can easily load the ligand and protein files in Autodock and perform virtual screening. An advanced version of Raccoon called, ‘Raccoon2’ has been introduced by Forli et al., (2016) [1] as GUI to prepare and analyze Autodock and Autodock Vina virtual screenings.

How to install Raccoon plugin on Ubuntu for virtual screening using Autodock?

in Bioinformatics Programming/Docking by

As mentioned in our previous articles, Autodock Vina [1] is a very useful bioinformatics tool for molecular docking and provides various options for site-specific docking and blind docking. But it seemed to be difficult to perform virtual screening using Autodock. Recently, Autodock has developed a plugin known as ‘Raccoon’ [2], which serves for this purpose.
