Welcome to the wiki page of opentox.ntua.gr.
NTUA projects developed under OpenTox:
JAQPOT Quattro: A new version of JAQPOT3 is currently being designed!
New Publications: Two new papers by P. Sopasakis and H. Sarimveis were accepted for publication in the 4th CEMEPE and SECOTOX conference in Mykonos, Greece, 24-28 June 2013. The first paper is titled "JAQPOT RESTful Web Services: An Implementation of the OpenTox Application Programming Interface for On-line Prediction of Toxicological Properties" and presents the JAQPOT3 web services developed within OpenTox. The second is titled "ToxOtis: A Java Interface to the OpenTox Predictive Toxicology Network" and presents concisely the ToxOtis Java interface.
OpenTox presentation: What OpenTox is about in a 50' presentation by B. Hardy. The presentation was given at the Josef Stefan Institute in Ljubljana.
Our ambitious plan is to develop OpenTox further as an infrastructure and community with annual events held in Europe and the USA in the area of predictive toxicology and related fields.
The OpenTox meetings are aiming at discussing the latest developments in predictive toxicology, including in silico modelling and application development, integrated data analysis, systems biology, visualisation, cheminformatics and bioinformatics.
Hands-on workshops on developments and applications enable participants to try out methods and software applied to predictive toxicology problems.
Q: I have a question myself, whom do I ask?
A: If your question is related to ToxOtis, become a member of the ToxOtis-discussion mailing list and afterwards mail us your question. OpenTox-relevant questions are better to be sent to the OpenTox-dev mailing list
Q: So, I want to access various OpenTox web services from within my Java application, where do I start from?
A: First take a look at the OpenTox API, mainly in order to understand what is offered by OpenTox and get an idea about how things work. Afterwards try ToxOtis - A Java Library integrated with Maven. Out of the ToxOtis suite package you need just the CORE module which can be downloaded from our NEXUS repository. If you need help on using ToxOtis CORE within your Maven project read this HOW-TO.
Q: I'm coding in Java but I'm using Ant and not Maven. Can I still use ToxOtis?
A: Of course! In all cases you can download the latest version of ToxOtis from https://sourceforge.net/projects/toxotis/files/. What is the same, you can use the OpenTox-NTUA Nexus Repository to download jar files (binaries, javadoc, sources).
