报告摘要:

The understanding of biomolecular structure, flexibility, function, and dynamics is one of the most challenging tasks in biological science. We have introduced persistent homology for extracting molecular topological fingerprints (MTFs) based on the persistence of molecular topological invariants. MTFs are utilized for protein characterization, identification, and classification. The multidimensional persistent homology is proposed and further used to quantitatively predict the stability of protein folding configurations generated by steered molecular dynamics. Further, we introduce multiresolution persistent homology to handle complex biomolecular data. The essential idea is to match the resolution with the scale of interest so as to represent large scale datasets with appropriate resolution. Finally, I will discuss the recent progress in topology based machine learning models and their applications in drug design. Essentially, topological invariant information, extracted from biomolecular structures, can be used as feature vectors for statistic learning models, such as SVM, Random forest, CNN, etc. These topology based models have delivered some of the best results in D3R international drug design competition.
