SCARdock is a free web server for screening covalent ligands based on our SCAR strategy.

Please visit the SCARdock web server to have a try.

This server also contains three datasets useful for the discovering of covalent ligands:


  • 1. A manually curated dataset containing 954 published high-quality complex structures of covalent ligands and protein targets. 
  • 2. A manually collected and curated dataset of 68 experimentally confirmed covalent warheads targeting 11 residues. 
  • 3. A pre-filtered and ready-to-use dataset containing 690,018 entries of purchasable compounds containing 68 warheads targeting 11 residues.
These datasets can be downloaded from the SCARdock web server
