WP 4: Analysis & Modelling
In silico Toxicology has developed the award winning lazar system (lazar.in-silico.de) for the prediction of toxic properties (currently available endpoints: rodent carcinogenicity, Salmonella mutagenicity, human liver toxicity, human maximum recommended therapeutic dose, skin-sensitization, blood-brain-barrier penetration, acute fathead minnow toxicity, biodegradability) and the algorithms BBRC and LAST-PM for supervised feature mining.
To ensure the ontology and data warehouse developed in WP2 and WP3 meets the safety-by-design and community needs, WP4 will develop computational infrastructure capable to analyse and extract knowledge out of diverse types of ENM-related theoretical descriptors, experimental data and associated metadata, including provenance of experimental data and experimental conditions and protocols.
