FRODOCK (Fast Rotational DOCKing) generates very efficiently many potential predictions of how two proteins could interact. This approximation effectively address the complexity and sampling requirements of the initial 6D docking exhaustive search by combining the projection of the interaction terms into 3D grid-based potentials with the efficiency of spherical harmonics approximations. This initial stage exhaustive docking obtain excellent accuracy results with standard benchmarks in just a few minutes, opening new application opportunities in the current 'omics' world.
