zinc.docking.org down for emergency maintenance

Dear ZINC users

zinc.docking.org is down for emergency maintenance. We will bring it back up as soon as we can. Probably later Monday evening in San Francisco. We regret any inconvenience. In the meantime, please check out zinc15.docking.org, which supports many of the features of zinc12, and many more. ZINC15 will replace ZINC12 completely in the summer of 2016.


ZINC update policy during the ZINC12->ZINC15 transition

Dear ZINC Fans

Our users ask several questions:

1) When will ZINC12 and ZINC15 be updated?
2) How long will the transition from ZINC12 to ZINC15 take?
3) Which one should I use? ZINC12 or ZINC15?

We take these up in turn.

updated databases

Raj Patel writes on twitter: @chem4biology hi all, can anybody tell me how to download the updated molecules from nov 2014 to nov 2015 ?????


Thanks for your question and your interest in ZINC. We have been putting all our effort into a new version of ZINC, ZINC15, which has recently appeared at JCIM. After that, all our effort went into the NIH grant that supports ZINC.

In the past week, I've been digging through all the deferred tasks, and one of these was updating ZINC12 catalogs. First, individual vendors, then the "lead like", "fragment like" and so on subsets.

ZINC15 selected for ACS Editor's Choice

DOCK Blaster is overloaded

Dear DOCK Blaster (and DOCKovalent) fans

We are delighted that so many people are using DOCK Blaster. Unfortunately, our server is overloaded and a lot of jobs are getting backed up. I will do some maintenance over the weekend to put this right. In the meantime, please be patient!

Thank you


Aggregators are here to stay, unfortunately.

Derek Lowe has blogged about our recent paper


and there are some nice comments from the community.
