Adequate computational techniques for modeling of protein interactions are important because of the growing number of known protein 3D structures, particularly in the context of structural genomics. Dockground project is designed to provide resources for the development of such techniques as well as increase our knowledge of protein interfaces. Dockground datasets are regularly updated and annotated.

The Dockground project is developed by the Vakser lab at the Center for Computational Biology at the University of Kansas. Parts of Dockground were co-developed by Dominique Douguet from the Center of Structural Biochemistry (INSERM U554 - CNRS UMR5048), Montpellier, France.
