Many applications require a method for translating a large list of bond angles and bond lengths to precise atomic Cartesian coordinates. This simple but computationally consuming task occurs ubiquitously in modeling proteins, DNA, and other polymers as well as in many other fields such as robotics. To find an optimal method, algorithms can be compared by a number of operations, speed, intrinsic numerical stability, and parallelization. We discuss five established methods for growing a protein… Expand
pNeRF: Parallelized Conversion from Internal to Cartesian Coordinates
TLDR
A mathematically equivalent algorithm, pNeRF, has been derived that is parallelizable along a polymer’s length and demonstrates an order-of-magnitude speed up using modern GPUs and CPUs. Expand
Parallelized Natural Extension Reference Frame: Parallelized Conversion from Internal to Cartesian Coordinates
TLDR
The conversion of polymer parameterization from internal coordinates to Cartesian coordinates is a fundamental task in molecular modeling, often performed using the natural extension reference frame (NeRF) algorithm, but is not parallelizable along the length of a single polymer. Expand
Spinor product computations for protein conformations
TLDR
The introduced mathematical framework enables to efficiently manipulate and generate protein conformations to any arbitrary degree and several new formulations in the context of rigid body motions are added. Expand
MP‐NeRF: A massively parallel method for accelerating protein structure reconstruction from internal coordinates
TLDR
This work proposes a massively parallel NeRF implementation which, depending on the polymer length, achieves speedups between 400 and 1200× over the previous state-of-the-art, and focuses on reusability and ease of use. Expand

The conversion algorithm is applicable to protein engineering and fitting protein structures to experimental data, and an order of magnitude speedup is observed using parallel processing on a GPU compared to serial execution on a CPU. Expand
Polymer conformations in internal (polyspherical) coordinates

A recursive algorithm is presented, in which a bond vector is explicitly written in terms of these internal, or polyspherical coordinates, in a local frame defined by two other bond vectors and their cross product. Expand
End to end differentiable protein structure refinement
Refinement is an essential step for protein structure prediction. Conventional force fields (both physics and knowledge-based ones) and sampling (molecular dynamics simulations and Monte CarloExpand
Unconstrained Structure Formation in Coarse-Grained Protein Simulations
The ability of proteins to fold into well-defined structures forms the basis of a wide variety of biochemical functions in and out of the cell membrane. Many of these processes, however, operate atExpand
Protein Conformation Motion Modeling Using Sep-CMA-ES
TLDR
This work presents a new coarse-grained method of modeling the protein motion between two given conformations based on optimization of a cost function similar to the one in the Monge-Kantorovich mass transfer problem. Expand
Improved prediction of protein side‐chain conformations with SCWRL4
TLDR
Accuracies as a function of electron density of the side chains demonstrate that side chains with higher electron density are easier to predict than those with low‐electron density and presumed conformational disorder. Expand

A New Method for Fast and Accurate Derivation of Molecular Conformations
TLDR
This paper introduces a new, fast, and accurate method called the atomgroup local frames method, which not only eliminates the disadvantages of earlier approaches but also provides lazy evaluation of atom positions and reduces the computational cost. Expand

TLDR
The computational efficiency of these rotational operators applied to protein chains is different from those reported for other applications (such as mechanical machinery) and the conclusions are not analogous. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that fragments need only contain native‐like subsections, which when correctly overlapped, can recreate anative‐like model, and help to define the parameters this method needs to generate near‐native structures. Expand
