If you have a question about this talk, please contact Danielle Stretch.

Three years ago, the idea of toxicogenomics – using omic technologies to understand/predict drug toxicity – started becoming a much discussed goal in industries such as pharma. Within a year, business was looking good for companies set up around what was still a very academic endeavor. Over the last year, notable enterprises behind toxicogenomics have largely failed. What has gone wrong? Is this another omics bubble prematurely pushing new science?

Quin Wills (SimuGen Ltd), will give an introduction to current toxicogenomic approaches, aimed at those interested in an overview of the scientific/statistical challenges, drug discovery and current technologies.

This talk is part of the Computational and Systems Biology series.
