DOCK 3.6 was the primary version of DOCK used in the [Shoichet Lab]] between 1998 and 2013. It was also called DOCK 3.5.54 or even DOCK 18.104.22.168 or DOCK 3.5ens. It has been largely superseded by DOCK 3.7. All docking papers from the Shoichet Lab during that time used this program. It was also used by DOCK Blaster from 2007 until present. We intend to switch over to DOCK 3.7 during 2014.
DOCK 3.5.54 was superseded by DOCK 3.6 in May 2010. DOCK 3.5.54 is no longer available.
