An Unsupervised Classification Algorithm for Heterogeneous Cryo-EM Projection Images Based on Autoencoders

An unsupervised heterogeneous cryo-EM projection image classification algorithm based on autoencoders is proposed, which only needs to know the number of heterogeneous 3D structures in the dataset and does not require any labeling information of the projection images or other a priori knowledge.

Stability and Inference of the Euler Characteristic Transform

A new metric on compact one-dimensional shapes is proposed and it is proved that the ECT is stable with respect to this metric, which uses curvature, rather than the size of a triangulation of an underlying shape, to control stability.

Using VAEs to Learn Latent Variables: Observations on Applications in cryo-EM

This case study qualitatively examines the amortization properties of a VAE used in biological applications and finds that in this application the encoder bears a qualitative resemblance to more traditional explicit representation of latent variables.

A stochastic approximate expectation-maximization for structure determination directly from cryo-EM micrographs

A single-particle cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) measurement, called a micrograph, consists of multiple two-dimensional tomographic projections of a three-dimensional molecular structure at

Boosted ab initio Cryo-EM 3D Reconstruction with ACE-EM

An improved autoencoder architecture called ACE (Asymmetric Complementary autoEncoder), based on which the ACE-EM method is designed, which reached the Nyquist resolution for 3D reconstructions of both simulated and experimental cryo-EM datasets.

Amortized Inference for Heterogeneous Reconstruction in Cryo-EM

It is proved that an amortized method can extract interpretable dynamic information from experimental datasets for the first time, and can provide one order of magnitude speedup on datasets containing millions of images without any loss of accuracy.

Heterogeneous reconstruction of deformable atomic models in Cryo-EM

A heterogeneous reconstruction method based on an atomistic representation whose deformation is reduced to a handful of collective motions through normal mode analysis that is able to recapitulate the intermediate atomic models with atomic-level accuracy.

Effects of cryo-EM cooling on structural ensembles

This work combined continuum model calculations of the temperature drop, molecular dynamics simulations of a ribosome complex before and during cooling with kinetic models, and the quantification of the heterogeneity of room-temperature ensembles from cryo-EM structures to suggest three effects markedly contribute to the narrowing of the structural ensemble.

Inferring a Continuous Distribution of Atom Coordinates from Cryo-EM Images using VAEs

This work presents a fully deep-learning-based approach using variational auto-encoders (VAEs) to recover a continuous distribution of atomic protein structures and poses directly from picked particle images and demonstrates its efficacy on realistic simulated data.
