OECD QSAR Toolbox V 4.2 training

Basic (November 5-6) and Advanced Practical (November 7-9), Barcelona.

What is the OECD QSAR Toolbox v 4.2

OECD QSAR Toolbox is a software intended for filling gaps in (eco)toxicity data needed for assessing the hazards of chemicals. The Toolbox incorporates theoretical knowledge, experimental data and computational tools from various sources into a logical workflow.

OECD QSAR Toolbox is strongly endorsed by ECHA and OECD

Who should attend the training:

  • Chemical industry involved in REACH, Biocides, Cosmetics, Plant Protection Products

  • Pharma industry- ICH M7 genotoxic impurities

  • I+D staff for (eco)toxicity profile anticipation

  • Researchers and university students - (reduced fee for academia)

  • National Authorities (reduced fee available)

What’s new in OECD QSAR Toolbox v 4.2:

  • automated prediction module for skin sensitisation and short-term toxicity to fish

  • category consistency

  • RAAF with report generation, to support read-across and grouping as scientifically acceptable according to ECHA requirements

  • interface with IUCLID6 for endpoint record automatic preparation

Training course content:

The aim is to acquire the knowledge in a practical way with by numerous practical examples and exercises. Each participant follows the cases on their laptop. Individual support assures the correct progress.

Basic Course (2 days training): 

Main topics are: chemical profiling, selection and use of different toxicological databases, categorisation, data gap filling, automatic report, interface with IUCLID 6, automated prediction module, metabolic maps. Practical individual exercises are covering different endpoints (tox and eco-tox).

Advanced Practical Course (3 days training):

Advanced functionalities are shown supported with more than 20 different examples of predictions.

Bring your case:

During the last day of the training, participants are invited to bring their example of a molecule and endpoint. Toolbox team will deliver the result of prediction while participants perform prediction on their own.  Each of these cases will be discussed together with the lecturer during the session.

Who is the trainer

Prof. Ovanes Mekenyan, director of Laboratory of Mathematical Chemistry OASIS in Bourgas is the head of the developers of the QSAR Toolbox. During the training he is assisted with other members of the developer’s team who individually instructs the participants during exercises and practical work (
