Automated System for the Prediction & Use of (Q)SARs

The goal of this project is to provide a user-friendly, practical and freely accessible web tool that helps the user to select the most appropriate (Q)SARs for product development, product registration as well as product follow-up. The developed decision tree will give the user an idea of the reliability of the (Q)SARs for testing of a specific compound/substance and, where applicable, indicate what additional information is needed in order to increase reliability. For example, a combination of (Q)SAR systems or additional data or expertise. As a result, the utility of (Q)SARs for a specific application can be estimated. The web tool will be a guide for the correct use of (Q)SARs for the prediction of the toxicity of chemicals. The target group of the web tool are people responsible for the development, registration and monitoring of products from the chemical-producing and chemical-using industries.
An ASOPUS usergroup will be established that provides participating companies with first access to the results of the project, including the testing of the tool, an opportunity to provide input during the project and a learning environment through active interaction with the experts.
