Now available on the IHCP web site
The 'Computation Toxicology and Modelling' section of the JRC-IHCP web site has been revamped and updated with materials previously available on the former European Chemicals Bureau (ECB) web site. It now includes:
- background information on non-testing methods,
- information on QSAR reporting formats,
- a range of other information sources,
- a list of IHCP publications, as well as
- freely available or accessible computational tools like:
- JRC QSAR Model Database, an online database which hosts structured and peer-reviewed information on Quantitative Structure-Activity Relationship (QSAR) Models;
- Toxtree, a software tool which predicts mechanisms of action or toxicological effects by applying decision-tree approaches;
- Dart (Decision Analysis by Ranking Techniques) a powerful and user-friendly software tool designed for the ranking of chemicals according to their environmental and toxicological concern based on the most recent ranking;
- Toxmatch a flexible, user-friendly application for grouping chemicals on the basis of chemical similarity. It is designed to facilitate the formation of chemical categories and the application of read-across.
- Stat4tox a software tool which carries out concentration-response analysis for in vitro experiments.
