We present a concept for the in silico simulation of adverse effects triggered by drugs and chemicals. The underlying philosophy combines flexible docking (software Yeti) for the identification of the binding mode(s) and 6D-QSAR (software Quasar) for their quantification. The results obtained for 106 diverse molecules binding to the estrogen receptor (q2 = 0.903; p2 = 0.885) suggest that our approach is suitable for the identification of an endocrine-disrupting potential associated with drugs and chemicals.
