    Improving search heuristics in molecular docking
    Abstract: Before the drug binds into the active site of the protein, it may need to pass through the tunnel within the protein. Molecular docking, a computer simulation, looks for a specific position of the drug so that its fits into the tunnel at the current spot. In collaboration with Loschmidt Laboratories in Faculty of Science at Masaryk University, we have developed a software tool CaverDock which applies a modified docking to construct a complete, smooth trajectory of the drug passing through the tunnel. From the point of computer science, the process of construction of the trajectory includes searching in a vast space of all possible conformations of the molecule. In this talk, we explain the current heuristics of that search and our attempts to improve it.
