quantitative structure–activity relationship (QSAR)
Quantitative structure–activity relationships (QSAR) are mathematical relationships linking chemical structure and pharmacological activity in a quantitative manner for a series of compounds. Methods
which can be used in QSAR include various regression and pattern recognition techniques. QSAR is often taken to be equivalent to chemometrics or multivariate statistical data analysis.
