Statistics-based model for basis set superposition error correction in large biomolecules

Author affiliations

Abstract

We describe a statistics-based model for the estimation of basis set superposition error (BSSE) for large biomolecular systems in which molecular fragment interactions are classified and analyzed with a linear model based on a bimolecular proximity descriptor. The models are trained independently for different classes of molecular interactions, quantum methods, and basis sets. The predicted fragment BSSE values, along with predicted uncertainties, are then propagated throughout the supermolecule to yield an overall estimate of BSSE and associated uncertainty. The method is described and demonstrated at the MP2/6-31G* and MP2/aug-cc-pVDZ levels of theory on a protein–ligand complex, a small helical protein, and a set of native and decoy folds of the Pin1 WW domain.
