Structure-based docking screens of large compound libraries are vital in early-phase drug discovery. Advancements in cloud computing and the availability of large, high-quality datasets now make it possible to perform virtual screening studies at an ultra-high-throughput scale while incurring only modest costs.


We recently tested the robustness of our docking package, GOLD, on cloud-based resources with a docking run of about 130 million compounds. We successfully docked about 3.85 million molecules per hour.
