Impact/Purpose:

Abstract submitted to FutureTox IV conference in November 2018. The concept of testing a ‘virtual embryo’ will be demonstrated utilizing case studies tying the in vitro data and in silico models to fundamental principles of teratogenesis.

Description:

Computer modeling and simulation of complex dynamical systems can provide a virtual framework for translating biomolecular lesions into critical phenomena underlying developmental processes and toxicities. In silico cell agent-based models (ABMs) may be executed to simulate how biomolecular lesions from in vitro HTS datasets (ToxCast) might propagate through a morphogenetic series of events to yield an adverse effect based on current theory as to molecular pathways and cellular processes that drive human embryology and development. The concept of testing a ‘virtual embryo’ will be demonstrated utilizing case studies tying the in vitro data and in silico models to fundamental principles of teratogenesis.
