Computational Toxicology: Methods and Applications for Risk Assessment is an essential reference on the translation of computational toxicology data into information that can be used for more informed risk assessment decision-making. This book is authored by leading international investigators who have real-world experience in relating computational toxicology methods to risk assessment. Key topics of interest include QSAR modeling, chemical mixtures, applications to metabolomic and metabonomic data sets, toxicogenomic analyses, applications to REACH informational strategies and much more. The examples provided in this book are based on cutting-edge technologies and set out to stimulate the further development of this promising field to offer rapid, better and more cost-effective answers to major public health concerns. Authored by leading international researchers engaged in cutting-edge applications of computational methods for translating complex toxicological data sets into useful risk assessment information Incorporates real-world examples of how computational toxicological methods have been applied to advance the science of risk assessment Provides the framework necessary for new technologies and fosters common vocabularies and principles upon which the effects of new chemical entities should be compared

Editorial Reviews

"Computational Toxicology is big and it is clever!...The book is easy to read with a wealth of easy to follow figures and an abundance of references.it offers readers a good perspective of what is currently achievable with computational toxicology and what is on the horizon. This book certainly has a place in most libraries."--btsNews, June 2014 "This collection reviews the state of the science in computer models for assessing human risk from chemical exposure and identifies specific applications that have enhanced the response to a defined risk assessment challenge.Practical translation of computational methods for risk assessment, computational translation and integration of test data to meet risk assessment goals, and computational translation of data from nonmammalian species. are also discussed."--ProtoView.com, February 2014 "ICF International experts authored this essential reference on the translation of computational toxicology data into information that can be used for more informed risk-assessment decision making. The book provides an updated summary of the state-of-the-art science in the field of computational toxicology methods and offers examples of applications to risk assessment."--ICF International online, 2013 "This collection reviews the state of the science in computer models for assessing human risk from chemical exposure and identifies specific applications that have enhanced the response to a defined risk assessment challenge. The 11 contributions describe physiologically based pharmacokinetic.models for simulating dose metrics in sensitive subpopulations, a dynamic systems model of rat liver homeostasis, the quantitative structure-activity relationship. tool for simulating necessary endpoints, and omics biomarker discovery."--Reference & Research Book News, December 2013 "The new book on Computational Toxicology edited by Dr. Bruce Fowler is a timely publication.  It presents, in a well-organized and concise manner, a collection of excellent chapters on the methods and practical applications of computational toxicology. This is a very useful reference volume, but can be read cover-to-cover by those of us who want a general and current understanding of computational toxicology.?--James C.
