Knowledge-based scoring functions have become part of the mainstream arsenal of tools for ranking putative protein-ligand complexes obtained by structure-based virtual screening or de-novo design computer experiments. Five years after the introduction of PMF scoring a critical review will be presented. Areas of improvement will be discussed that relate to an increased knowledge base, optimized atom typing, and exploring ways to include hydrogen bond directionality.
