In this CCDC Virtual Workshop, you will learn the basics of how to perform Protein Ligand Docking using GOLD.


We will cover:

  • The basics of GOLD and our Hermes interface.

  • How to run a standard protein ligand dock.

  • How to identify the correct binding modes reliably and with confidence.

  • The basics of how GOLD can be used in virtual screening and lead optimisation.


This session will last 90 minutes, inclusive of time to try the hands-on part. At the end, our expert tutors will be available an extra 15 minutes, should you need to complete the exercises or wish to try more or ask more questions.



  • This is an entry-level session so anyone can join, but some knowledge of docking and drug discovery would be useful.

  • The CSD Software installed and an active CSD-Discovery (or above*) license. (*CSD-Discovery, or CSD-Enterprise).
