About the diXa project
The goal of the Data Infrastructure for Chemical Safety project (diXa) is to develop a robust and sustainable infrastructure for the collection of high throughput toxicogenomics datasets produced by past, present and future EU research projects.
This data collection will be complemented by the development of online analytical resources and links to other globally-available chemical/toxicological and human disease databases – with a focus towards the development of non-animal tests for prediction of chemical safety.
To further facilitate data sharing and collaboration, diXa focuses on networking activities aimed at contributing to a comprehensive web-based, openly accessible and sustainable infrastructure for capturing and integrating toxicogenomics data from the widest possible sources.
Networking, driven by a programme of dissemination and training provision, crosses traditional borders between scientific disciplines and reaches out to other, complementary, research communities. By ensuring clear communication, diXa can collaboratively provide core service support, data sharing SOPs, offer quality assessments, and deliver innovative tools and techniques for data analysis and management.
To illustrate the value in such an approach diXa, through its joint research initiative and by using the developed data infrastructure, will perform cross-platform integrative statistical analyses, and cross-study meta-analyses, to create a systems model for predicting chemical-induced liver injury.
