I am developing a small suite of python applications, one of which uses AutoDock Vina.
Currently, to prepare the PDBQT for screening, I am using prepare_ligand4.py, which uses the pythonsh binary, both provided by the MGLTools package.
I am wanting to move the application to a cluster where it may not be possible to either a) access/run the pythonsh binary or b) run the prepare_ligand4.py program in an environment which means that it will work properly.
Thus, is there an alternative to prepare_ligand4.py? I am aware that it is assigning partial charges and atom types - is there a way to do this without the MGLTools dependency?
