In silico Biomagnification Factor prediction project
This repository contains material for the prediction of the Biomagnification Factor (BMF) of organic chemicals in fish by Quantitative Structure-Activity Relationship (QSAR) methods.
Reference paper: Grisoni, F., Consonni, V., Vighi, M. (2018): "Acceptable-by-design QSARs to predict the dietary biomagnification of organic chemicals in fish", Integrated Environmental Assessment and Management" (IEAM), just accepted.
From this webpage, you can have access to two types of material:
- logBMF dataset: containing experimental BMF values, SMILES strings, computed molecular descriptors, predicted/calculated values for 214 organic chemicals, available here.
- BMF_pred software: to apply the models described in the original paper. Software freely available for non-commercial use at Alvascience download link.
For more details on the dataset see Grisoni et al., 2018, Chemosphere.
