"From an informatics standpoint, however, historical toxicity data present some difficult and unique challenges that have confounded efforts to create a centralized public data repository. Not only do these data exist in many formats and locations in the public domain, but they also span many levels of biological organization, detail, degrees of summarization and annotation, and disciplines of toxicological study [5,6]. The only common thread and shared information metric that truly has the potential to span and unify these disparate data is the molecular structure of the test chemical, and the underlying chemistry that it represents."
