I have several questions about AutoDock Vina:

Can I perform a blind docking between a DNA/protein complex and a ligand?
What really represents the exhaustiveness parameter (number of independent runs, .....?)
Why the number of binding modes seems to be limited to 20?
How many runs are performed in a docking experiment?

The config file that I test is the following, does it seem correct to you?
Thank you very much for your advices.


receptor = receptor.pdbqt
ligand = ligand.pdbqt

center_x = 45.4
center_y = 53.0
center_z = 43.7

size_x = 69.7
size_y = 69.7
size_z = 69.7

cpu = 12
out = conf.pdbqt
log = conf.log

num_modes = 50
energy_range = 100
exhaustiveness = 10000
