ADL: Autodock, Vina and protein-protein interactions

Dear Lydie,

you might wish to try Zdock for protein-protein docking. You will find 
it on the web.

Ki calculation is based on a constant number multiplying your energy 
score, which is totally empirical. Thus you might wish to abandon Ki as 
a criterion in the future.

I have tried Vina : it works but it is very time and processor consuming since my gridspace is bigger than 27000A3. Can anyone give me a program that could do such calculations faster ?
