OECliqueSearch

class OECliqueSearch

This class represents OECliqueSearch.

The OECliqueSearch class performs bounded common substructure searches. It is a useful search method in cases where common substructures other than the maximum common substructure (OEMCSSearch) need to be identified.

Constructors

OECliqueSearch(unsigned int type=OEMCSType::Default)

Default constructor.

OECliqueSearch(const OECliqueSearch &)

Copy constructor.

OECliqueSearch(const char *smarts, unsigned int type=OEMCSType::Default)

Constructs an OECliqueSearch object using a ‘smarts’ pattern. The SMARTS pattern is parsed into a query molecule (OEQMolBase). The valid types of the OECliqueSearch are defined in the OEMCSType namespace.

OECliqueSearch(const OEQMolBase &, bool perception=true,
               unsigned int type=OEMCSType::Default)

Constructs an OECliqueSearch object using a query molecule (OEQMolBase).

qmol
The query molecule of the MCS search.
type
The type of the OECliqueSearch from the OEMCSType namespace.
perception
If true, then ring perception is performed on the query molecule.
OECliqueSearch(const OEMolBase &, unsigned int atomexpr, unsigned int bondexpr,
               unsigned int type=OEMCSType::Default)

Constructs an OECliqueSearch object using a molecule and expression options. The atom and bond expression options passed as the second and third arguments to the method are defined in the OEExprOpts namespace. The expression options are used to convert the atom and bond data into expression trees which are used during the common subgraph search.

operator=

OECliqueSearch &operator=(const OECliqueSearch &rhs)

Assignment operator that copies the data of the ‘rhs’ OECliqueSearch object into the right-hand side OECliqueSearch object.

operator bool

operator bool() const

Test for successful initialization of an OECliqueSearch object. If initialization was attempted with an invalid SMARTS pattern or query molecule (OEQMolBase) then this method will return false. If initialization was completed successfully this method will return true. An OECliqueSearch object is considered to be uninitialized when constructed with the default constructor.

AddConstraint

bool AddConstraint(const OEMatchPair<OEAtomBase> &)
bool AddConstraint(const OEMatchPair<OEBondBase> &)

The search space of a common subgraph determination can be restricted by constraining pairs of nodes or edges (atoms or bonds) to be mapped onto one another in all subgraph solutions. Failure to satisfy atom or bond pairwise constraints will prevent any subgraph solutions from being identified. Constraints are considered satisfied in subgraphs which do not contain any constrained atoms or bonds in either the pattern or target molecules.

Both OECliqueSearch.AddConstraint methods return true if a constraint is added successfully. If the pattern atom or bond in the OEMatchPair does not exist as part of the query molecule created in the initialization of the OECliqueSearch object then OECliqueSearch.AddConstraint will return false. Multiple calls to OECliqueSearch.AddConstraint using the same pattern atom or bond will cause previously stored constraints to be overwritten as constraints are mutually exclusive. It is impossible to satisfy multiple simultaneous constraints for a single pattern atom or bond, hence the exclusivity.

ClearConstraints

void ClearConstraints()

Clears all prior match constraints set with the OECliqueSearch.AddConstraint methods.

GetMaxMatches

unsigned int GetMaxMatches() const

Returns the maximum number of subgraphs that the OECliqueSearch will identify before terminating the search. A value of zero indicates that no arbitrary limit has been set on the total number of subgraphs to be identified. By default, the maximum number of matches is set to 1024 This value can be set using the OECliqueSearch.SetMaxMatches method.

GetMinAtoms

unsigned int GetMinAtoms() const

Returns the minimum number of atoms of a subgraph that can be returned as a common subgraph. This value can be set using the OECliqueSearch.SetMinAtoms method.

GetPattern

const OEQMolBase &GetPattern() const

Returns a read-only reference to the query molecule (OEQMolBase) of OECliqueSearch. Const OEQMolBase methods can be used on the returned OEQMolBase reference. If the OECliqueSearch object has not been initialized, a reference to an empty molecule will be returned.

GetSaveRange

unsigned int GetSaveRange() const

Sets the This value can be set using the OECliqueSearch.SetSaveRange method.

Init

bool Init(const char *smarts)

(Re)initializes an OECliqueSearch object using a ‘smarts’ pattern. The SMARTS pattern is parsed to create a query molecule available for subgraph matching. The method will return true if initialization completes successfully, and false upon failure.

Note

Prior state information is cleared before initialization, and is lost even if the method fails to initialize properly.

bool Init(const OEQMolBase &qmol, bool perception=true)

(Re)initializes an OECliqueSearch object using a query molecule (OEQMolBase) reference. The method will return true if initialization completes successfully, and false upon failure.

qmol
The query molecule of the MCS search.
perception
If true, then ring perception is performed on the query molecule.

Note

Prior state information is cleared before initialization, and is lost even if the method fails to initialize properly.

bool Init(const OEMolBase &mol, unsigned int atomexpr, unsigned int bondexpr)

(Re)initializes an OECliqueSearch object using a molecule (OEMolBase) and expression options used to convert the molecule into a query molecule (OEQMolBase). The atom and bond expression options passed as the second and third arguments to the method are defined in the OEExprOpts namespace. Expression options are used to convert the atom and bond data into expression trees which are used during the common subgraph search. The method will return true if initialization completes successfully, and false upon failure.

Note

Prior state information is cleared before initialization, and is lost even if the method fails to initialize properly.

Match

OESystem::OEIterBase<OEMatchBase> *Match(const OEMolBase &)

Performs search in order to identify common subgraphs (cliques) shared between the passed OEMolBase and the query molecule which the OECliqueSearch object was initialized. It returns an iterator pointer (OEIterBase) over graph matches (OEMatchBase), and should be assigned to an OEIter < OEMatchBase > in order to prevent memory leaks.

If the ‘uniquematch’ argument passed to the methods is true then only the unique matches will be returned in the iterator over the matches. By definition, a match or subgraph is considered unique if it differs from all other subgraphs found previously by at least one atom or bond. Additionally, it is also considered unique if the query subgraph is mapped to a different part of the target (See example in the Maximum Common Substructure Search section)

SetMCSFunc

bool SetMCSFunc(const OEMCSFunc &)

Stores a copy of the passed OEMCSFunc functor in the OECliqueSearch object. The functor is then used to evaluate and order subgraphs found during a common subgraph search.

SetMaxMatches

bool SetMaxMatches(unsigned int)

Sets the maximum number of common subgraph (clique) matches that will be returned by the OECliqueSearch.Match method. The default limit set upon construction of an OECliqueSearch object is 1024 matches. This value can be retrieved using the OECliqueSearch.GetMaxMatches method.

SetMinAtoms

bool SetMinAtoms(unsigned int)

Sets the minimum number of atoms required of a subgraph match to be returned a solution by a clique search. A single atom can be a perfectly valid common subgraph, however, for many applications such a small subgraph may not be considered useful. Setting the minimum number of atoms to an appropriate size prevents unproductive subgraph matches from being returned by the OECliqueSearch.Match method. The default value for the minimum number of atoms in a subgraph match is set to 1 upon construction of an OECliqueSearch object. This value can be retrieved using the OECliqueSearch.GetMinAtoms method.

SetSaveRange

bool SetSaveRange(unsigned int)

Sets the range of the clique search. This value can be retrieved using the OECliqueSearch.GetSaveRange method.
