Impact/Purpose:

The tcpl R package and its associated MySQL database provide a generalized platform for efficiently storing, normalizing, and dose-response modeling of high-throughput and high-content chemical screening data. The novel dose-response modeling algorithm has been tested against millions of diverse dose-response series, and robustly fits data with outliers and cytotoxicity-related signal loss.

Description:

Motivation: The large and diverse high-throughput chemical screening efforts carried out by the US EPAToxCast program requires an efficient, transparent, and reproducible data pipeline.Summary: The tcpl R package and its associated MySQL database provide a generalized platform forefficiently storing, normalizing, and dose-response modeling of high-throughput and high-content chemicalscreening data. The novel dose-response modeling algorithm has been tested against millions of diversedose-response series, and robustly fits data with outliers and cytotoxicity-related signal loss.Availability: The tcpl package is freely available on the Comprehensive R Archive Network under theGPL-2 license.
