QSAR, read-across, genotoxicity and pesticides


  • There is increased interest for Structure-Activity approaches by regulatory bodies, particularly QSAR and Read Across.

  • EFSA organized an evaluation of in silico models for predicting the genotoxicity of pesticides and their metabolites.

  • The project includes literature survey, application of QSARs and development of Read Across methodologies.

  • The methods were assessed on a new, publicly available EFSA genotoxicity database of pesticides and metabolites.

  • This paper summarizes the main results of the study.
