Global and Restrained Docking Exploration Nexus
3D-GARDEN is a state-of-the-art comprehensive software suite and server for protein-protein docking with full high-performance computing functionality implementing multiple novel efficient methodologies: 

TODE, using simplicial complex representation of the protein surfaces to generate and score an ensemble of complexed structures in the initial conformational state, which is naturally pre-enriched in structures with favourable shape complementarity
RABBIT, an efficient refinement method based on exhaustive search of torsion angles with tuned step sizes

Please note that this program supersedes 3D-DOCK.


3DLigandSite predicts ligand binding sites using ligand binding data from homologous structures. Users can either input a sequence, or a protein structure. Where a sequence is used, Phyre, our in-house structure prediction server first models the protein structure.

3D-PSSM (Academic use only)

Please note that 3DPSSM has been superseded by PHYRE. Protein fold recognition using 1D and 3D sequence profiles coupled with secondary structure and solvation potential information.
