Publication: The FAIR Guiding Principles for scientific data management and stewardship

There is an urgent need to improve the infrastructure supporting the reuse of scholarly data. A diverse set of stakeholders—representing academia, industry, funding agencies, and scholarly publishers—have come together to design and jointly endorse a concise and measureable set of principles that we refer to as the FAIR Data Principles. The intent is that these Read more about Publication: The FAIR Guiding Principles for scientific data management and stewardship[…]

Publication: Selectivity profiling of BCRP versus P-gp inhibition: from automated collection of polypharmacology data to multi-label learning

The human ATP binding cassette transporters Breast Cancer Resistance Protein (BCRP) and Multidrug Resistance Protein 1 (P-gp) are co-expressed in many tissues and barriers, especially at the blood–brain barrier and at the hepatocyte canalicular membrane. Understanding their interplay in affecting the pharmacokinetics of drugs is of prime interest. In silico tools to predict inhibition and Read more about Publication: Selectivity profiling of BCRP versus P-gp inhibition: from automated collection of polypharmacology data to multi-label learning[…]
