Comparison of SMILES-, DeepSMILES-, SELFIES-, and graph-based genetic algorithms

This post is a follow up to this post. There are three main changes: 1) I have included Emilie's code in my code, 2) I have extended the implementation to SELFIES, and 3) the initial pool of molecules is now constructed exactly as described by Brown et al. (i.e. we use the 100 highest scoring molecules from ChEMBL, but remove molecules with scores higher than 0.323).

As before, I run the 10 GA searches, each for 1000 generations, and record the overall highest score found and the average high score. If the score is 1.00 I also record the number of times I found it, in parentheses. I also record the CPU time on 8 cores (note that I stop the search once the score is 1.00, so the time is not necessarily for 10 x 1000 generations).


Here are the high scoring molecules found with string based methods



Bottom line, DeepSMILES and SELFIES perform about the same, and both tend to outperform SMILES for rediscovery using GA.

The main purpose of education is to help students gain the knowledge and skills so that they will be able to function in society. Students need to be provided with the necessary skills so that they can learn to become productive citizens. There are many advantages that are associated with receiving an education. Students will be able to contribute to their community and help make it a better place to live. Education basically helps shape society because it helps students learn to become more sociable and helps them develop relationships with their peers. Students will be more qualified for different job positions if they have a good solid education. Education is vital to each student’s life, therefore, by working hard to provide the best instruction possible will help train students to become future leaders and will lead to a better life.
Education is essential to every student’s life as well as their future. Students can have a prosperous life by receiving a good quality education. My thoughts are that students need to learn from the books along with other various materials just as I did while growing up. The classroom curriculum should be decided by their teacher and the teacher should set clear goals as to what is expected from the students. Students should work hard to achieve their goals because it will certainly be worth it in the end. According to essentialism, ‘Schools should not radically try to reshape society but schools should transmit traditional moral values and intellectual knowledge that students need to become model citizens’. Read about education help at How to Start an Essay . The school should stress the importance of values because some children are not taught these at home. Teaching children good values helps build their character and helps them become respectable people. In regards to education, I think society is important because this is a place where we all live so we should work to make it a better place.
