Chemical and Biological resources for Toxicology and Toxicogenomics (Chemical and Biological resources for Toxicology and Toxicogenomics)
Owner/Developer: The Data Infrastructure for Chemical Safety & University of Maastricht (dixa)
01 October 2011
EU Framework Programme 7
This 3-day diXa course will give participants an overview of the chemical and biological resources that are available for researchers in the field of Toxicology and Toxicogenomics. The course is aimed at researchers and scientists from academia as well as Industry with an interest in toxicology, toxicogenomics and life sciences.
The Data Infrastructure for Chemical Safety (diXa) project works with past and current EU FP7 projects, developing Alternatives to Animal testing, to safeguard data for the future. diXa aims to develop a sustainable data infrastructure to capture all data produced by toxicogenomics projects in a standardized, harmonized and sustainable manner. The lack of such an infrastructure currently prevents innovative breakthroughs from meta-analyses of joint databases and systems modeling. The diXa Data Warehouse will link to other globally available chemical/toxicological databases and data bases on molecular data of human disease to facilitate interdisciplinary research.
