Impact/Purpose:

Presentation to the fall meeting of the American Chemical Society in August 2019. This presentation will provide an overview of the latest release of the CompTox Chemicals Dashboard and how it has developed into an integrated data hub for environmental data.

Description:

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Computational Toxicology Program utilizes computational and data-driven approaches that integrate chemistry, exposure and biological data to help characterize potential risks from chemical exposure. The National Center for Computational Toxicology (NCCT) has measured, assembled and delivered an enormous quantity and diversity of data for the environmental sciences, including high-throughput in vitro screening data, in vivo and functional use data, exposure models and chemical databases with associated properties. The CompTox Chemicals Dashboard website provides access to data associated with ~900,000 chemical substances. New data are added on an ongoing basis, including the registration of new and emerging chemicals, data extracted from the literature, chemicals studied in our labs, and data of interest to specific research projects at the EPA. Hazard and exposure data have been assembled from a large number of public databases and as a result the dashboard surfaces hundreds of thousands of data points. Other data includes experimental and predicted physicochemical property data, in vitro bioassay data for over 4000 chemicals and 2000 assays, and millions of chemical identifiers (names and CAS Registry Numbers) to facilitate searching. Other integrated modules include an interactive read-across module, real-time physicochemical and toxicity endpoint prediction and an integrated search to PubMed. This presentation will provide an overview of the latest release of the CompTox Chemicals Dashboard and how it has developed into an integrated data hub for environmental data.
