Genedata releases ToxPedia for Systems Toxicology

13.03.2007
Genedata announces the release of Genedata ToxPedia, a computational solution supporting organizations to adopt systems toxicology for drug safety prediction. Systems toxicology promises to reduce costly failures in the late stages of drug development and is attracting interest from pharmaceutical companies as well as drug safety regulators.

To gain the greatest benefit from systems toxicology, scientists need to integrate toxicogenomic data with conventional toxicological end points. This integration enables a systematic search for clinically relevant molecular biomarkers that can be used to predict a compound’s toxicity profile, before expensive clinical trials are initiated.

ToxPedia supports a data driven approach to systems toxicology. The system enables biomarker identification based on an integrated analysis of toxicogenomic data, namely of high throughput transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics data, with conventional toxicological end points. The ToxPedia system is built on the well established Genedata Expressionist platform and has been expanded by Genedata’s professional services team in close collaboration with scientists from leading pharmaceutical organizations.

The system is designed to address the specific requirements of systems toxicology. Tight integration with all major high throughput technology platforms, coupled with sophisticated data quality assessment tools, enables ToxPedia to achieve the highest standards in data quality evaluation. Ultimately, the goal is that ToxPedia supports the standardization and automation of the entire systems toxicology workflow from the initial sample gathering stage through to final study reporting phases, and addresses compliancy aims such as 21 CFR Part 11 guidelines.

Genedata also collaborates actively with research consortia focused on biomarker discovery, including the consortia InnoMed, NewGeneris, and INCA.

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
