pyDockSAXS server is a web server for rigid-body protein-protein docking that combines computational and
On one side the server uses the new version of pyDock (pyDock 3.0) to energetically evaluate the interaction surface of multiple docking poses.
On the other side, the server evaluates the capacity of each pose to describe the experimental curve of SAXS with the program CRYSOL. The appropriate combination of both scoring functions yields predictions of the 3D arrangement of the complex in solution.

How to use it
Please, check the tutorial in order to become familiar with the server. You can also see an example output or load the example data through the "Load example data" button.
Receptor PDB and ligand PDB are valid PDB structure files and
their relative positions and orientations are evaluated with pyDockSAXS.
Notice that SAXS is sensitive to the molecular weight of the molecules. If receptor and ligand pdbs are only partial representations of the protein species experimentally measured in the complex bad results will probably derived. The SAXS experimental curve is a CRYSOL compatible file.
Previous docking results is an option for advanced users to reuse pyDockWEB server rigid-body docking results. Please refer to the help section for further details.
