Tox21 Data Challenge Opens August 18th

The Tox21 Data Challenge 2014 will "crowdsource" data analysis by independent researchers to reveal how well they can predict compounds' interference in biochemical pathways using only chemical structure data. The computational models produced from the Challenge could become decision-making tools for government agencies in determining which environmental chemicals and drugs are of the greatest potential concern to human health.

Participants may join any or all of 15 different subchallenges to predict compound activity in one or more of 12 different biochemical pathways. One winner will be selected for each subchallenge, and all winners will have an opportunity to submit a paper for a special issue of Frontiers in Environmental Sciences.

More information about the Challenge is available on the NIH website. The National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences will begin accepting submissions August 18; submission deadline is November 14. Winners will be announced January 12, 2015.

More information about Tox21 is available here.
