Prediction of molecular energy using deep tensor neural networks
Pages: 229 – 250
In this paper, we propose a combined scheme called Quantum Mechanics and Deep Tensor Neural Network (QM-DTNN) to address the challenges related to the prompt and accurate calculation of the physicochemical properties of a protein. In QM-DTNN, a protein is decomposed into individual amino acid units that are treated with molecular caps. The physicochemical properties (molecular energy) of amino acid units are predicted using DTNNs, which are trained by QM (ab Initio) data. The training, validating, and testing data sets are made of conformations drawn through enhanced sampling in specific collective variable spaces. The inputs of DTNNs include pair-wise inter-distance and nuclear charges of an amino acid unit. The outputs of DTNNs, which are the physicochemical properties of amino acid units, are calculated using QM. The three typical amino acid units (i.e., Arginine, Lysine, and Tryptophan) are used to demonstrate the feasibility of QM-DTNN. The prediction results demonstrated good correlations to QM data. The proposed scheme reduces the computational time considerably compared to that of QM calculation with acceptable precision loss.
