RICHARD, A. M., M. WOLF, T. Transue, AND R. JUDSON. DSSTox Project Update: Supporting Improved Toxico-Chemoinformatics Capabilities . Presented at International Science Forum on Computational Toxicology, Research Triangle Park, NC, May 21 - 23, 2007.

Description:

Efforts to improve public access to chemical toxicity information resources and to systematize older toxicity studies, along with significant amounts of new data being generated from high throughput screening (HTS) technologies, have the potential to significantly improve predictive capabilities in toxicology. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) Distributed Structure-Searchable Toxicity (DSSTox) Database Network project is contributing to these efforts on a number of fronts
