Computational Toxicology Research
ToxCast Chemical Data Challenges and Release
EPA’s new toxicity data on 1,800 chemicals is accessible through the interactive Chemical Safety for Sustainability Dashboards (iCSS dashboard). The iCSS dashboard provides user-friendly and customizable access to toxicity data from ToxCast and Tox21 high-throughput chemical screening technologies.
Using the TopCoder and InnoCentive platform, EPA is inviting the science and technology community to work with the data and provide solutions for how the new toxicity data can be used to predict potential health effects. The first two ToxCast data challenges focus on using this data to predict the lowest dose that would show adverse effects in animals. Challenge winners will receive awards for their innovative research ideas.
