OpenTox is an European Commission Framework Program 7 funded project (2008-2011), aims to develop distributed framework for predictive toxicology. The building blocks considered are : data, chemical structures, algorithms and models. The framework allows to build models, apply models, validate models, access and query data in various ways. Technologies used are REST style web services and W3C Resource Description Framework for description of services.


OpenTox mandatory representation of REST resources is RDF (W3C Resource Description Framework). Examples: 1,2.

The JSON representation is a new development, implemented in AMBIT web services 1,2, 3.

  • The JSON or JSONP representation could be retrieved via HTTP Accept headers "application/json" or "application/x-javascript" respectively. The callback parameter when using JSONP is 'callback'.

  • As a workaround for web browsers restriction, the URI parameter ?media=application/json or ?media=application/x-javascript could be used.
