Overview of Quantitative Structure–Activity Relationships (QSAR)

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Other


It is clear that the observable (macroscopic) properties of matter are connected in some, usually complex and non-linear way, with their atomic and molecular (microscopic) properties. The ability to model these relationships is very important in many areas of science, particularly those concerned with the biological properties of molecules. Clearly a single residue change in a peptide sequence, a single atomic change in a small organic molecule, or even a change in the shape of a molecule induced by isomerism can profoundly affect the biological properties of these entities.
