Note that this is version 2.1 of the HADDOCK server.
A new version (2.2) is now available here.
HADDOCK (High Ambiguity Driven protein-protein DOCKing) is an information-driven flexible docking approach for the modeling of biomolecular complexes. HADDOCK distinguishes itself from ab-initio docking methods in the fact that it encodes information from identified or predicted protein interfaces in ambiguous interaction restraints (AIRs) to drive the docking process. HADDOCK can deal with a large class of modeling problems including protein-protein, protein-nucleic acids and protein-ligand complexes.
More information about HADDOCK can be found on the HADDOCK website

HADDOCK webserver
REGISTRATION: The use of the HADDOCK WeNMR GRID-enabled docking server is free for academic users. Access to the server is managed through Single Sign On (SSO) authentication using your WeNMR account. Old style HADDOCK web server accounts are still supported. How to proceed:

  1. Become a member of the WeNMR Virtual Research Community at
  2. Once logged in, go to the "My Services" tab in your account profile and subscribe to the HADDOCK web portal. Follow the instructions on screen.
  3. Once you are a member of the WeNMR VRC it is easy to subscribe to the many services WeNMR has to offer (note that some of which will require a valid X509 personal certificate - but not HADDOCK)


The default HADDOCK settings used by the server can be found here A list of modified amino acids supported by HADDOCK can be found here

HADDOCK help center
You can post question regarding the use of the HADDOCK web server using the WeNMR HADDOCK support center. To make use of this service you should first register with the WeNMR virtual research community (register link on the top right of the WeNMR page).
Further the WeNMR site also provides a number of HADDOCK tutorials and a WIKI page to which you can contribute.

Server output example
An example of the server output for the e2a-hpr example provided with the HADDOCK distribution can be found here. This is the result of a run via the "easy interface" using only chemical shift perturbations as defined in the HADDOCK tutorial.
A demo web form for the easy interface with pre-loaded parameters is available here

A demo web form for the guru interface with pre-loaded parameters is available here

A tutorial describing the use of the HADDOCK web portal with various combinations of data is available here

A demo of the easy interface based on the above tutorial is available in YouTube, together with a 1 1/2 hour lecture on HADDOCK by Prof. A. Bonvin

A recent SBGrid webinar by Prof. A. Bonvin describing the differences between using the webserver and a local version of HADDOCK is available on YouTube
An old tutorial movie is available here (requires Flash)
