We take up the problems you may be having using DOCK Blaster. There are other problem pages too:
This is part of the DOCK Blaster:FAQ.
There are many reasons why your input may be rejected by the DOCK Blaster:scrutinizer. Many of these owe to the nature of the file formats we accept (PDB, mol2) and the complexity of protein binding sites. We know this can be frustrating. We have tried to make the error messages helpful, descriptive and short. Please read them carefully and attempt to follow them. However, if you are not making progress after you have tried five times to correct your input, please email support at docking.org, including your JOB ID number if available, and a short description of the problem as you see it, so that we can look at the problem.
