ADL: AutoDock 4.2 vs. AutoDock Vina

Hello Everyone,

I am trying to dock a ligand against my receptor using published
parameters. However, I am using AutoDock Vina, and the paper used AutoDock
4.2. There are some parameters that they published that I am unsure of
"ga_pop_size, 500; ga_num_evals, 10 000 000; ga_num_generations 500 000,
and ga_run, 250". They stated tthat they modified these parameters due to
the large size of the grid box that they used. First, what do these
parameters change, and how can I change them in Vina? Any help would be
greatly appreciated!
