Molecular docking is the major computational technique employed in the early stages of computer-aided drug discovery. The availability of free software to carry out docking simulations of protein-ligand systems has allowed for an increasing number of studies using this technique. Among the available free docking programs, we discuss the use of ArgusLab (http://www.arguslab.com/arguslab.com/ArgusLab.html) for protein-ligand docking simulation. This easy-to-use computational tool makes use of a genetic algorithm as a search algorithm and a fast scoring function that allows users with minimal experience in the simulations of protein-ligand simulations to carry out docking simulations. In this chapter, we present a detailed tutorial to perform docking simulations using ArgusLab.
