DOCKGROUND protein-protein docking decoy set

Bioinformatics. 2008 Nov 15;24(22):2634-5. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btn497. Epub 2008 Sep 23.


A protein-protein docking decoy set is built for the Dockground unbound benchmark set. The GRAMM-X docking scan was used to generate 100 non-native and at least one near-native match per complex for 61 complexes. The set is a publicly available resource for the development of scoring functions and knowledge-based potentials for protein docking methodologies.

Availability: The decoys are freely available for download at
