Dear users,

I was thinking about Gasteiger charges, and I would like to ask you - why
AutoDock uses only PEOE charges? What about pi charges ?
I am thinking about using PETRA online server( to compute total charges
(sigma (PEOE) + pi ) for ligand instead of only PEOE charges from AutoDock.
Has anybody use PETRA or other total charges instead of PEOE in docking
especially in AutoDock?
I would be very grateful for any help!
