OpenTox has been a successful effort thus far in its technical and scientific dimensions, a lot of excellent work was accomplished during the OpenTox project, from which a community has developed around the ideas and concepts.
The OpenTox meetings are aimed at discussing the latest developments in predictive toxicology, including in silico modelling and application development, integrated data analysis, systems biology, visualisation, cheminformatics and bioinformatics. Hands-on workshops on developments and applications enable participants to try out methods and software applied to predictive toxicology problems. We recently have had our first successful OpenTox Events is Asia in late 2016, and 2017. To view all of our previous events please visit here.
Garuda was used to design and build the TG-GATES OpenTox service on the Garuda gateway. The service benefits the community as a research platform, while enabling the development of consulting services based on Garuda for providing unique and customized solutions for EdelweissConnect and their partners and customers.
Douglas Connect, together with its partner SBX are developing OpenTox Garuda Gadgets to provide access to multiple sources of toxicology data socialised to systems biology and bioinformatics applications. Garuda is a connectivity and automation platform for various tools and applications (called Gadgets) developed by The Systems Biology Institute, Tokyo with custom services provided by SBX Corporation, Tokyo.
