Q-edit - Prediction

Using the compound and the QSAR model provided by the user in the previous sections, Q-edit can invoke the necessary OpenTox web services to return the predicted value as well as (if available) the experimental value for the compound. This functionality is available under the fourth tab - namely Prediction - where the user is required to report the predicted value and comment on the uncertainty of the prediction and the possible chemical and/or biological mechanisms that might affect its reliability - for example a particular compound might appear to be active according to a QSAR model but in practice it is not well absorbed.
