Data analysis in bioinformatics relies heavily on statistics and machine learning. Many of these approaches use simplistic formats for representing real-world objects. Recent computational methods rely on more structured representations. This paper presents an object-oriented approach to model toxicity as an intelligent data type. The intelligent data type representing toxicity is potentially useful for a wide range of bioinformatics methodologies and systems including data warehousing, data mining, knowledge-based and simulation systems, and within distributed computing environments such as emerging Grid applications.
