GOLD provides users with the option of including their own scoring function, provided that it conforms to a prescribed C Application Programming Interface (API). The A.P.I. will allow users to modify the GOLD scoring-function mechanism so as to:
- Calculate and write out additional data after each docking
- Add extra terms to the scoring function
- Implement a completely new scoring function
More details can be founds in the GOLD API documentation found in the api_doc folder in your GOLD Suite installation.
