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: New interactive machine learning tool makes car designs more aerodynamic

Scientists develop first tool to use machine learning methods to compute flow around interactively designable 3D objects. Tool will be presented at this year’s prestigious SIGGRAPH conference.

When engineers or designers want to test the aerodynamic properties of the newly designed shape of a car, airplane, or other object, they would normally model...

Im Focus: Robots as 'pump attendants': TU Graz develops robot-controlled rapid charging system for e-vehicles

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.

Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....

Im Focus: The “TRiC” to folding actin

Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.

Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...

Im Focus: Lining up surprising behaviors of superconductor with one of the world's strongest magnets

Scientists have discovered that the electrical resistance of a copper-oxide compound depends on the magnetic field in a very unusual way -- a finding that could help direct the search for materials that can perfectly conduct electricity at room temperatur

What happens when really powerful magnets--capable of producing magnetic fields nearly two million times stronger than Earth's--are applied to materials that...

Im Focus: World record: Fastest 3-D tomographic images at BESSY II

The quality of materials often depends on the manufacturing process. In casting and welding, for example, the rate at which melts solidify and the resulting microstructure of the alloy is important. With metallic foams as well, it depends on exactly how the foaming process takes place. To understand these processes fully requires fast sensing capability. The fastest 3D tomographic images to date have now been achieved at the BESSY II X-ray source operated by the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin.

Dr. Francisco Garcia-Moreno and his team have designed a turntable that rotates ultra-stably about its axis at a constant rotational speed. This really depends...
