      Here, chemoinformatics is considered as a theoretical chemistry   discipline complementary to quantum chemistry and force-field   molecular modeling. These three fields are compared with respect   to molecular representation, inference mechanisms, basic concepts   and application areas. A chemical space, a fundamental concept of   chemoinformatics, is considered with respect to complex relations   between chemical objects (graphs or descriptor vectors).   Statistical Learning Theory, one of the main mathematical   approaches in structure-property modeling, is briefly reviewed.   Links between chemoinformatics and its “sister” fields – machine   learning, chemometrics and bioinformatics are discussed.
