Adverse Outcome Pathway Knowledge Base (AOP-KB)
Owner/Developer: The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, European Commission, US Environmental Protection Agency, US Army Corps of Engineers - Engineering Research and Development Center (OECD, EC, US EPA, ERDC)
To enable the scientific community, in one central location, to share, develop and discuss their AOP related knowledge, the OECD has launched a project to develop the "Adverse Outcome Pathway Knowledge Base" (AOP-KB). The AOP-KB allows all stakeholders to build AOPs by entering and then linking information about MIEs, KEs, AOs and Chemical Initiators. Knowing that pathway elements are not necessarily unique to a single AOP, value is added to existing knowledge by facilitating the re-use of MIE, KE and AO information in multiple AOPs, which prevents redundancy and make the collective knowledge about those entities available in all AOPs in which they appear.
