Interactions between large biomolecules and smaller bio-active ligands are usually studied through a process called docking. Its aim is to find an energetically favorable orientation of a ligand within an active site of a biomolecule. Chemical reactions take place in active site and the role of the ligand is either to speed up, slow down or change the reaction (e.g., an enzyme catalyzed hydrolysis), which is why it can have huge pharmaceutical or other commercial impact. We present a tool that supports effective management and control of a typical workflow of docking parametric study. Selected subsets of ligands and protein trajectory snapshots can be displayed in three different views and further analyzed. Finally, the application supports spawning and steering underlying computations running on the grid.
