Is it possible to perform blind docking using GOLD?


Unfortunately GOLD is not ideally suited to cases where no binding site is to be designated.

GOLD currently has a built-in upper limit on the maximum size of a binding site which is 20Å from a specified point or ligand.

The only approach is to split the protein into multiple binding sites and carry out individual docking experiments on all of these.​
