I am considering an experimental design that would perform virtual
screening using flexible receptors. I've already setup a good system
using the mgltools scripts. Now I am considering the flexible
receptors. When you prepare a flexible receptor you need to specify
which residues should be flexible. I am wondering if there are any
approaches to picking these receptors that would lend themselves to
