Graph Mining papers (Graph Kernel and Maximum Common Subst.)

Two actual papers are published in the 'QSAR & Comb. Chem.' journal http://dx.doi.org/10.1002/qsar.200510135 and http://dx.doi.org/10.1002/qsar.200510009

The Maximum Common Substructure (MCS) method works uses single atom properties, which can be also numeric.

The Optimal Assignment (Graph) Kernel works on multiple chemical atom and bond labels and is an extremely fast chemical similarity measure. Due to the fact that it is a positive definite matrix, this measure can be used for any SVM based learning method, like classification, regression, and clustering.... read more

ACS Meeting 2005 - JOELib: Graph/Data Mining and Clustering

We present two lectures at the ACS meeting (http://www.chemistry.org) discussing results for graph mining, data mining and clustering. All results were obtained by using JOELib (some unpublished work), the Weka and Spider machine learning libraries.
Lecture details can be found at

Characteristic Polynomials (for weighted graphs)

The Le Verrier-Faddeev-Frame method was added to JOELib2, which allows to calculate characteristic polynomials for general weighted graphs with user defined atom and bond labels.

For theoretical and application details see:
1. Trinajstic, N. Chemical Graph Theory CRC Press, Florida, U.S.A., 1992
2. Bonchev, D. & Rouvray, D.H. (ed.) Chemical Graph Theory: Introduction and Fundamentals Gordon and Breach Science Publishers, 1990.

JOELib2: Switching from pre-alpha to alpha

After finishing the most critical refactorings and optimizing the stability metric (distance to optimal instability/abstractness line), we switch now from pre-alpha to alpha.
The good news for all users is that the interface will be frozen at this stage. All further changes can then be made to another major and hypthetical JOELib3 release.

JOELib2 release (pre-alpha)

The initial pre-alpha-JOELib2 release is now available via CVS under joelib2 or in the download section. This release is a heavily refactored version of the original JOELib version, with an emphasis on software design and future trends.

Extended tutorial and code cleanup

The tutorial contains now a formal definition of a molecular graph.
I've started with a code cleanup to reduce the PMD warnings a little bit.

Kind regards, Joerg

New release with SMARTS testing framework

Hi all,

the new JOELib release adds an extensive SMARTS testing framework, which can be used to test and use SMARTS. For verbosity these results can be checked against molecule files (addressed by molecule name).

Have much fun, Joerg

Bug fix: Complex descriptors in sequential uncompressed CML2

Sorry, the sequential CML2 (for uncompressed files ONLY !) reader caused null pointer exceptions for complex available descriptor values, like array, matrices, atom-pairs, ...
This was fixed and added to CVS.

'QSAR, LBDD and SBDD'-RSS test feed available.

A RSS feed adressing topics for Quantitative Structure Activity Relationship (QSAR), Ligand Based Drug Design (LBDD) and Structure Based Drug Design (SBDD) was established. It's still a test which contains also structural information based on CML2.

Sequential SAX parser for CML2, also for compressed files !

A sequential SAX parser was added for uncompressed and compressed files.

CML2 support updated !

This release contains an updated CML2 support including namespaces, descriptors and stereochemistry. BTW, the missing stereochemistry output was added to the MDL SD format !

Updated XML DocBook tutorial

The missing descriptions for the new descriptors were added and are now also available as HTML format in the joelib/src/docs/descs-directory. So the startup-warnings are now a thing of the past.

ResourceLoader bug fix for Linux systems

Improved PDF-writer stores descriptors

The improved PDF-writer stores now also descriptor entries. More complex descriptor entries like arrays, matrices and so on are truncated. Otherwise the layout would be too bad.

Code cleanup and extended tutorial (+26 pages)

The source code was checked for duplicate code in descriptor calculation classes and simple atom property calculation classes were added to facilitate this task.

The API documentation was a little bit improved, especially for the descriptor and the io classes.

The tutorial was extended with 26 pages explained examples (source code snippets) for standard tasks.

Unfortunately now the duplicate code moved to these helper classes !;-) Much greetings to the PrettyMessDetection (PMD) crew (http://pmd.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/webpmd.pl). removing duplicated code is much more complicated than expected.
