On December 1-2, 2005, at Procter & Gamble, Brussels Innovation Center, we convened a scientific panel to train Pathway Prediction System (PPS) users, and discuss further development and future directions of the PPS. The panel was composed of participants from the United States and Europe, representing academia, industry and government regulatory agencies (see below). This second ALARM PPS Workshop was built on the outcome and implemented improvements of the first ALARM-PPS Workshop, held in Minneapolis in May 2005 with predominantly US-based experts.
Chemical companies, government regulators, and academic scientists all need to predict the metabolic fate of (new) chemicals in the environment. The biodegradation knowledge needed includes the possible pathways of biodegradation, the likelihood of given pathways, and influences of environmental conditions. As such, it was the goal of the 2nd ALARM-PPS Biodegradation Expert System Workshop to:
