I am dealing with molecular docking of ligands to cysteine proteases and i
got several questions to pose.
1) For example looking at the structure of Falcipain-2 (PDBID=2OUL), i can
see it got several water molecules. when and how do i determine whether i
should stripe off the molecules. According to
i should check if the the catalytic site has water molecules. How do i
2) I got a cysteine PDB structure and a docked ligand PDB. How do i combine
the two to make one PDB file that i can use as my starting structure for MD
