Robust Scoring Functions for Protein-Ligand Interactions with Quantum Chemical Charge Models

Ordinary least-squares (OLS) regression has been used widely for constructing the scoring functions for protein-ligand interactions. However, OLS is very sensitive to the existence of outliers, and models constructed using it are easily affected by the outliers or even the choice of the data set. On the other hand, determination of atomic charges is… CONTINUE READING
