Sorry, you will have to do your own literature searching! This address is for help in using Chimera, not general research advice. My statement was based on seeing Autodock Vina mentioned in many research papers over the years, but I don’t have a specific list. You could just search for keywords like “vina” or “autodock vina”. However, people who use Autodock Vina are not necessarily using Chimera or the web service; many people download that software and use it directly. It is developed by a group at Scripps:
