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.

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
