Uses Computational Tools to Simulate Endocrine Disruption Phenomena
Endocrine Disruption Modeling provides a practical overview of the current approaches for modeling endocrine activity and the related potential adverse effects they may induce on environmental and human health. Based on the extensive research of an international panel of contributors from industry, academia, and regulatory agencies, this is the first book devoted to using computer tools to better understand and simulate the multifaceted aspects of endocrine disruption in humans and wildlife.
Explores Diverse Modeling Techniques and Applications
This up-to-date resource focuses on xenobiotics that are accidentally released into the environment with the potential to disturb the normal functioning of the endocrine system of invertebrates and vertebrates but also on the specific agro-chemistry design of chemicals that take control of insect endocrine systems. A comprehensive research reference, Endocrine Disruption Modeling provides a collection of computational strategies to model these structurally diverse chemicals. It concludes with a review of the available e-resources in the field, rounding out the book’s task-oriented approach to future EDC discovery.
Endocrine Disruption Modeling is the first book in the QSAR in Environmental and Health Sciences series (James Devillers, [email protected]).
