Protein-ligand docking simulation is central in drug design and development. Therefore, the development of web servers intended to docking simulations is of pivotal importance. SwissDock is a web server dedicated to carrying out protein-ligand docking simulation intuitively and elegantly. SwissDock is based on the protein-ligand docking program EADock DSS and has a simple and integrated interface. The SwissDock allows the user to upload structure files for a protein and a ligand, and returns the results by e-mail. To facilitate the upload of the protein and ligand files, we can prepare these input files using the program UCSF Chimera. In this chapter, we describe how to use UCSF Chimera and SwissDock to perform protein-ligand docking simulations. To illustrate the process, we describe the molecular docking of the competitive inhibitor roscovitine against the structure of human cyclin-dependent kinase 2.
