Abstract and Presentation for American Chemical Society Fall Meeting August 2018

Description:

The US EPA’s National Center for Computational Toxicology (NCCT) has been both measuring and aggregating data to support our research efforts for over a decade. We have delivered these data via a number of publicly accessible websites, so-called dashboards, to provide transparent access to the outputs of the center. Since the inception of our research, software projects technologies have changed dramatically, as have the expectations regarding the methods by which to access data. Our informatics efforts provide access to millions of dollars of high-throughput screening data available in open, downloadable formats, via web services and through a rich web interface. Similarly, we provide access to experimental and predicted data associated with ~760,000 substances to serve the environmental chemistry community, and open source code for predictive models. This presentation will provide an overview of the efforts of NCCT to provide transparent access to our research and data via our publications (and accompanying supplementary data), via our Open Data policies, and through our databases, software tools and web services. This abstract does not necessarily represent the views or policies of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
