I would use vina to see how detergents interact with the hydrophobic domain of membrane proteins. In that case, how to make possible that more than 20 states could be estimated ? Could this number become a parameter to set up in the command line when running vina?
Thank you for your suggestions

I am reposting this from the Vina mailing list:

If you can re-compile Vina, you can change this line = 20;

in main/main.cpp. Note that changing that "20" in the code changes the
algorithm somewhat, and not just the output.

Alternatively, without re-compiling, if you normally run Vina with
exhaustiveness=8, you can instead run it 8 times with exhaustiveness=1
and collect up to 20 conformations from each run, which may or may not
be the same between runs.

I have recompiled vina in Linux (CentOS, Ubuntu and Fedora) and it works. I haven't been able to do it in Mac OS X.

Good luck!
