OpenTox – an EC funded FP7 Research Project (1 September 2008 – 2011) OpenTox is a EC funded project to create an open source framework and unified
access to toxicity data and QSAR (quantitative structure-activity relationships)
models with supporting validation and interpretation. OpenTox will address
aspects of the REACH legislation and will extend access to non-animal-testing
methods for toxicologists and other scientists who are not experts in QSAR.
