An interdisciplinary overview on recent advances in Quantitative Structure–Activity Relationships (QSAR) studies
Presents both a review of new ideas about methodology and new areas of QSAR applications
A simply written, practical guide for academics, industrial scientists and decision makers taking their first steps in QSAR analysis
Recent Advances in QSAR Studies: Methods and Applications presents an interdisciplinary overview on the most recent advances in QSAR studies. The first part of this volume is handbook-esque and consists of a comprehensive review of QSAR methodology written by outstanding scientists and highly experienced lecturers. It focuses on methodology and new ideas, providing readers with an idea of recent trends and developments in each part of QSAR strategy (descriptors, methods of modelling, validation). The second part of this volume highlights the interdisciplinary aspects and new areas of QSAR modelling. It outlines the theoretical framework together with practical applications. The most optimal solutions (descriptors, mathematical/statistical methods, validation) in the individual areas of interest (environmental risk assessment, drug design, etc.) are also discussed in more detail.
Recent Advances in QSAR Studies: Methods and Applications is targeted at scientists who are focussed on developing new methodologies as well as researchers who are engaged in trying to solve specific problems via QSAR. Additionally, this volume should serve as an essential reference to promote interactions between members of the academic community and industry.
