Unsupervised learning of dynamical and molecular similarity using variance minimization

20 Dec 2017  ·  Brooke E. Husic, Vijay S. Pande ·

In this report, we present an unsupervised machine learning method for determining groups of molecular systems according to similarity in their dynamics or structures using Ward's minimum variance objective function. We first apply the minimum variance clustering to a set of simulated tripeptides using the information theoretic Jensen-Shannon divergence between Markovian transition matrices in order to gain insight into how point mutations affect protein dynamics... Then, we extend the method to partition two chemoinformatic datasets according to structural similarity to motivate a train/validation/test split for supervised learning that avoids overfitting. read more
