Bottom-up coarse-grained molecular dynamics models are parameterized using complex effective Hamiltonians. These models are typically optimized to approximate high dimensional data from atomistic simulations. In contrast, human validation of these models is often limited to low dimensional statistics that do not necessarily differentiate between the CG model and said atomistic simulations. We propose that explainable machine learning can directly convey high-dimensional error to scientists and… Expand


Neural Network Based Prediction of Conformational Free Energies - A New Route toward Coarse-Grained Simulation Models.
A new method where a neural network is used to extract high-dimensional free energy surfaces (FES) from molecular dynamics simulation trajectories and it is shown that the NN not only is able to correctly describe the free-energy surface for oligomer lengths that it was trained on but also was able to predict the conformational sampling of longer chains.

Recent Progress towards Chemically-Specific Coarse-Grained Simulation Models with Consistent Dynamical Properties
An overview of efforts to address the accurate description of dynamical properties generated from CG simulations is presented, ranging from bottom-up parametrizations of generalized Langevin equations to refinements of the CG force field based on a Markov state modeling framework. Expand
Bottom-Up Coarse-Graining of Peptide Ensembles and Helix-Coil Transitions.
The potential of the MS-CG method for accurately modeling complex biomolecular structures is demonstrated, but the importance of more complex potentials for modeling cooperative transitions with a minimal CG representation is highlighted. Expand
Adversarial-residual-coarse-graining: Applying machine learning theory to systematic molecular coarse-graining.
The resulting framework can rigorously parameterize CG models containing CG sites with no prescribed connection to the reference atomistic system (termed virtual sites); however, this advantage is offset by the lack of a closed-form expression for the CG Hamiltonian at the resolution obtained after integration over the virtual CG sites.
