BYOM v6.0 officially launched + stdDEB package

After several beta versions (including the one used for the 2021 DynModTox course), I have now released a version that gets the official v6.0 designation. There's been a lot of changes, relative to the previous official version 5.2. Most importantly, support for the parallel-processing toolbox and e...

Re: Are DEBtox models applicable for acute exposure data?

For validation, you can be a bit more flexible since you would not need to fit the model to the data set. However, for a convincing proof that the calibrated model can predict something, you would still need to be able to see effects. If the test is too short to really spot effects on growth and rep...

Re: BYOM v6.0 BETA 7 launched

Plus all major packages updated to work with BYOM 6.0. I am working on a number of new packages, resulting from recent projects, but that takes a bit more work.

BYOM v6.0 BETA 7 launched

Today, I released BYOM v. 6.0 BETA 7 through the website: http://debtox.info/byom.html. This is a small update from the BETA 6 version. I expect this to be close to finished for 'official release'. Some testing of advanced features is going on the next few weeks, so I wait for that.

Re: Are DEBtox models applicable for acute exposure data?

So, you're using "acute" strictly as a measure of test duration, and not to mean "short term survival", I guess (there is often confusion about this in ecotox). In that case, I would define "acute" not as an absolute time period but relative to the life cycle of the spe...

BYOM v6.0 BETA 6 launched

Today, I released BYOM v. 6.0 BETA 6 through the website: http://debtox.info/byom.html . This is the first version of v.6.0 that is released to the world (earlier beta versions where spread to specific people, and beta 5 was used in the DynModTox course). I keep it as beta for now for a few reasons:...

Re: openGUTS available for download

On 26 May 2020, v1.1 of the Matlab version of openGUTS was released, fixing an error in the IT calculations. More information on this error on the openGUTS website.

Oops ... first real calculation error in openGUTS

The IT calculations in openGUTS use a shortcut that, I just found out, does not work in all cases. This error will affect IT calibrations for time varying exposure, where the exposure scenario includes episodes of linear decrease over time (for constant exposure and block pulses, it will be fine). I...
