Quantitative Structure-Activity Relationship (QSAR) is a field where true multidisciplinary approaches are being used. This volume titled Recent Trends on QSAR in the Pharmaceutical Perceptions offers an overview on the latest advancements in the field. The e-book explains both basic approaches and new approaches and ideas in QSAR research, providing readers with an impression of recent inclinations and advances in different aspects of the QSAR strategies, such as descriptors, methods of modeling and validation.

This e-book is a valuable reference for pharmacologists, medicinal chemists, drug designers, biotechnologists and industry (pharmaceutical and chemical) professionals. It should serve as an important reference material to stimulate interactions and bridge the gap between participants in academia and industries.
