i am planning to submit a manuscript tha involves docking with Vina. i am just wondering whether i can write few lines on how it works (for example, for AutoDock, standard stuffs such as its based on Lamarckian Genetic Algorithm, it treats the ligand and selected parts of the protein as flexible, it uses uses a scoring function based on the AMBER force field etc. are available).

secondly, do you recommend minimizing energy of the ligand using a different software before converting it to pdbqt format in ADT (for VINA)?
