Dear Cristina,
You should probably ask the SwissDock people, since we don’t know the details of what their server requires.  I’m guessing you are using this website:


Also they probably wouldn’t be able to tell you anything either unless you include the file you were trying to upload. The ligand should probably be a small molecule and not contain metals or rare elements, but that’s just my guess.

I hope this helps,

However, when I tried to upload the mol2 file in SwissDock I get this error:  “Ligand setup failed. Please check that your structure file has a correct topology. No extra info available”.
