PSA: A Method for Quantifying Macromolecular Pathways

PSA: A Method for Quantifying Macromolecular Pathways

Transition pathways in high dimensional spaces, such as the ones produced by advanced algorithms to sample large conformational changes in macromolecules, are difficult to analyze quantitatively. We introduce a method named Path Similarity Analysis (PSA) that enables us to quantify the similarity between two arbitrary paths and extract the atomic-scale determinants responsible for their differences. PSA is implemented in the MDAnalysis library.
