Computational toxicology seeks to apply modern computing and information technology, with molecular biology and chemistry to predict toxicity of chemical compounds and to improve risk assessment. Recent technological breakthroughs have made it possible to discover new mechanisms of toxic action and have opened the way for the implementation of systems biology and in silico methods in the field of toxicology. Coupling different levels of modelling will enable the integration of disparate data and will provide a powerful tool for studying various aspects of predictive toxicology.
