Rethinking 3D-QSAR

The average error of pIC50 prediction reported for 140 structures in make-and-test applications of topomer CoMFA by four discovery organizations is 0.5. This remarkable accuracy can be understood to result from a topomer pose’s goal of generating field differences only at lattice intersections adjacent to intended structural change.
