Surprisal Adaptive Sampling

Markov state models (MSMs), which model conforma
tional dynamics as a network of transitions between metastable states, have 
been increasingly used to model the thermodynamics and kinetics of
biomolecules. In considering perturbations to molecular dynamics induced
 by sequence mutations, chemical modifications, or changes in external
 conditions, it is important to assess how transition rates change, 
independent of changes in metastable state definitions.
