Last project


Integrating bioinformatics and chemoinformatics approaches for the development of expert systems allowing the in silico prediction of toxicities. European project funded by IMI, extended until 2016 and coordinated by the GRIB. The eTOX project aims to develop a drug safety database from the pharmaceutical industry legacy toxicology reports and public toxicology data, innovative in silico strategies and novel software tools to better predict the toxicological profiles of small molecules in early stages of the drug development pipeline.
