DART (Decision Analysis by Ranking Techniques)

DART (Decision Analysis by Ranking Techniques) is a powerful and user-friendly software tool designed for the ranking of chemicals according to their environmental and toxicological concern based on the most recent ranking theories.

Different kinds of order ranking methods, roughly classified as total (also called even-scoring) and partial-order ranking methods (Hasse diagram technique), are implemented in DART. These methods can be used to rank chemicals on the basis of more than one variable.

DART was developed by Talete srl (Milan, Italy) under the terms of a JRC contract. It is made available as a free download. The source code file is available on request. Please contact the Computational Toxicology Group.
