Thesis topic: Analysing protein dynamics using Variational Autoencoders
My master's thesis focused on visualizing and analyzing the latent space of a Variational Autoencoder (VAE) trained on protein trajectories. The relationship between the similarities of the data samples in the input space and latent space was analyzed. Additionally, a hybrid VAE+LSTM model was proposed for predicting protein trajectories.
