OpenTox

Background

OpenTox has been a successful effort thus far in its technical and scientific dimensions A lot of excellent work was accomplished during the OpenTox project, from which a community has developed around the ideas and concepts.

In developing infrastructure, such as the Data Warehouse, the project is taking advantage of existing open standards, particularly the OpenTox project. OpenTox developed a standard framework for interoperable predictive toxicology support. It makes extensive use of web services for interaction with different geographically distributed services necessary to support predictive toxicology data management, algorithms, modeling, validation, and reporting. Extensions are being made to the OpenTox framework to support additional activities needing services such as representing and analysing ‘omics datasets.
