ArgusLab

I just saw a post on the SynapticLeap by Anatoly Chernyshev about a docking program that sounds perfect for our needs:
If you need a quick assessment of the docking mode for a molecule, the best tool IMHO is ArgusLab (http://www.arguslab.com). It's free, runs under Win and has very good user interface. The tutorial is also supplied, so that average person can learn the software in one evening. It can dock molecular libraries without user intervention. I also found its performance comparable to more advanced packages (Dock, AutoDock). Perhaps, it will not show all 'best hits', but it, definitely, discards the wrong ones.
Lets find out how good it is. Anybody out there have experience with ArgusLab?

REALLY IT IS AN AMAZING SOFTWARE....FOR BIOINFORMATICIANS IT IS VERY USEFUL SOFTWARE MAINLY IN THE FIELD OF COMPUTER AIDED DRUG DESIGNING.....BECAUSE THE DOCKING OF THE LIGANDS WITH THE TARGETS GIVING BETTER RESULTS COMPARED TO OTHER SOFTWARES.....

its not worst software bt they have nt mentioned anything in tutorials abt the docking..not even abt the recombining curatated protein parts..

Argus is so amazing but can we used it in alder ene reaction and not in enzyme ligand interaction?

Karen - I don't know but I would guess not

Respected Sir,

I am not able to perform docking on argus lab..the software is not able to define groups and make binding site and ligand to perform docking calculations, it is also asking to use molview window to make proper groups..Please help

Thanking You
Raman

My group has not used ArgusLab in a long time so I'm not sure how to help - but I'll ask them to look into it
