A multiconformational method for analyzing the biological activity of compounds is proposed that combines conformer search algorithms and a 3D‐QSAR receptor modeling procedure. The method allows one to find high‐activity and low‐activity conformers and determine the receptor shape. The biological activity of a substance is determined as a superposition of the activities of its conformers with allowance for their proportions in the substance. Agreement between calculated and experimental conformations and between calculated and experimental biological activities pIC 50%) is demonstrated by the example of agonists of the 5‐HT1A receptor.
