Title: Proceedings of the third international workshop on quantitative structure-activity relationships in environmental toxicology

Abstract

The 3rd International Workshop on Quantitative Structure-Activity Relationships (QSAR) in Environmental Toxicology (QSAR-88) was organized to facilitate the exchange of ideas between experts in different areas working in QSAR. Invited participants were selected to provide a mixture of representatives from biology, chemistry, and statistics as well as industry, government, and academia. The theme for QSAR-88 was ''Interrelationships of QSAR and Mechanisms of Toxic Actions.'' The program was divided into four sessions of invited talks on statistics, molecular descriptors, fish QSARs, and non-fish QSARs and a poster session. These Proceedings contain the text of the 16 invited technical papers and descriptions of the 16 contributed poster presentations. In addition, we include a summary of the Workshop prepared by Dr. Kaiser. The use of structure-activity relationships to elucidate trends in toxicology has been documented for more than a century. However, it is only over the past fifteen years that the modern tools, initially developed for experimental drug design, have been brought to bear on the problem of environmental contamination. The very nature of the field has, from the start, required the collaboration of experts from several scientific disciplines.
