Big Data in Modern Computational Toxicology

Leader: The big data approaches developed in this project are expected to directly evaluate the chemical animal toxicity for new compounds from existing public toxicity data. Additionally, the chemical-in vitro-in vivo relationships developed in the modeling process can be used to explain and predict potential toxicity mechanisms. Figure 1. The chemical in vitro-in vivo relationships [read more]
