AutoDock is obtainable free of charge for academic research users only from the Scripps Research Institute. To obtain your own copy, go here.

The distributors of AutoDock require their users to sign a User's Agreement, and HPCVL has done so. Our license agreement covers only academic researchers that are HPCVL users, explicitly excluding any commercial or contract usage. Like with other software, HPCVL requires users who want to use AutoDock, to read the license agreement, and sign a statement that they have done so and will abide by its terms. The license agreement can be downloaded here . Please also download the statement , sign it and return it to us. You will then be included in a Unix user group that has access to the AutoDock executables.
