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.

Whispering gallery mode (WGM) resonators are used to make tiny micro-lasers, sensors, switches, routers and other devices. These tiny structures rely on a...
Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!
When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...
For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.
Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
