Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Rapid advances in computer science, biology, chemistry, and other disciplines are enabling powerful new computational tools and models for toxicology and pharmacology. These computational tools hold tremendous promise for advancing science, from streamlining drug efficacy and safety testing, to increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of risk assessment for environmental chemicals. Computational Toxicology provides biomedical and quantitative scientists with essential background, context, examples, useful tips, and an overview of current developments in the field. Divided into four sections, Volume I covers a wide array of methodologies and topics. Opening with an introduction to the field of computational toxicology and its current and potential applications, the volume continues with 'best practices' in mathematical and computational modeling, followed by chemoinformatics and the use of computational techniques and databases to predict chemical properties and toxicity, as well as
