Interactive predictive toxicology with Bioclipse and OpenTox

Egon Willighagen, Roman Affentranger, Roland Grafström, Barry Hardy, Nina Jeliazkova and Ola Spjuth


Computational predictive toxicology draws knowledge from many independent sources, providing a rich support tool to assess a wide variety of toxicological properties. A key example would be for it to complement alternative testing methods. The integration of Bioclipse and OpenTox permits toxicity prediction based on the analysis of chemical structures, and visualization of the substructure contributions to the toxicity prediction. In analogy of the decision support that is already in use in the pharmaceutical industry for designing new drug leads, we use this approach ...
