The QSAR feature turns Bioclipse into a fully-fledge workbench for Quantitative Structure-Activity Relationship (QSAR). It builds on the novel standard and exchange format QSAR-ML, and there are several implementations of descriptor providers, for example CDK (local, REST, XMPP) and JoeLib (local).
