Publications in Computational Chemistry on Molecular Docking, Flexibility, Conformation, etc., by :

BibTeX references.

"A central question for the docking problem is how to represent the geometry of the cavity, an how to compare it to the geometry of the ligand." (Kavraki)

Conformation: unique 3D shape of a molecule which corresponds to a global minimum of its total energy, specified only by the chemical composition of the molecule (e.g., consider the problem of protein folding).
