Nanosafety data

Answering scientific questions with linked European nanosafety data

Currently, the scores and the data to support answering the scientific questions are limited by the limited amount of data exchange in the cluster and because of lack of high-quality annotation. With better annotation, it will give more precise answers.


Poster presented at the Benelux Bioinformatics Conference 2015

This poster was presented at the Benelux Bioinformatics Conference 2015 under the title: eNanoMapper - Ontology, database and tools for nanomaterial safety evaluation Nanomaterials are defined by size: between 1 and 100 nm in at least one dimension. The properties of these material do not always resemble those of the bulk material, i.e. micro- and bigger particles, or solutions.

How to store nanomaterial safety data: meet eNanoMapper database

The experimental data in the public datasets is usually not in a form appropriate for modelling. Standardisation in these sources is specific to each database. Even in curated collections the preparation of data for modelling is not a straightforward exercise - e.g. the experimental values can be merged in many different ways into a matrix, ...
