In silico tools can offer immediate, world-wide, free (in many cases) access to a formidable amount of tools: databases, libraries of structures and properties, literature studies, models. Within a few years ToxCast will produce experimental data on 100,000 chemicals, omics will produce huge amount of data, HTPS will generate unprecedented amount of data. No single human expert will have the time and the possibility to dig these incredibly large collections of results. Even today thousands of chemicals are present in libraries with their toxicity properties.
The sooner the correct use of in silico models will be widespread, the better, in order to take advantage and exploit these results.
A concise and accessible explanation of in silico methods and the issues around them, for people who want to know about them, and/or want to understand what the ORCHESTRA project is about. Download the leaflet
