AN INTRODUCTION TO REPLACING EXPERIMENTATION USING READ-ACROSS AND QSAR MODELLING
► Understanding the OECD QSAR Toolbox interface and functionalities.
► Be able to use the tool to obtain profiling and Read-Across/QSAR predictions for various physicochemical, ecotoxicological and human health endpoints.
► To assess the reliability in predictions derived using the OECD QSAR Toolbox.
► To generate prediction reports for the read-across and QSAR results.
► Introduction to OECD QSAR Toolbox
► Overview of all the tool functionalities
Profiling and category formation :
► Introduction to profiling and category formation approaches in the tool
Read-Across and QSAR predictions :
► Physicochemical endpoints
► Ecotoxicological and environmental endpoints
► Human health endpoints
► Training participants can choose the endpoints and the chemical structures to be used as case studies
Read-Across/QSAR prediction reports :
► Generation of prediction reports which could be used for regulatory purposes
- Digital and paper presentation material
- Free software to download and associated case studies
- Initial knowledge assessment grid
- Pre- and post-training assessment quizzes
