In this work, a new method for exploring conformational energy landscapes is described. The method, called transition-rapidly exploring random tree (T-RRT), combines ideas from statistical physics and robot path planning algorithms. A search tree is constructed on the conformational space starting from a given state. The tree expansion is driven by a double strategy: on the one hand, it is naturally biased toward yet unexplored regions of the space; on the other, a Monte Carlo-like transition… CONTINUE READING
