The Toxicology and Environmental Health Information Program, managed by the National Library of Medicine's Division of Specialized Information Services, provides access to a number of online bibliographic and factual computer files concerned with the toxicology, safety and handling, and environmental fate of chemicals, along with other files that cover genetic toxicology, developmental and reproductive toxicology, mutagenesis, carcinogenesis and toxic chemical releases. 

TOXNET: an evolving web resource for toxicology and environmental health information.

The EDKB: an established knowledge base for endocrine disrupting chemicals

The utility of EDKB database is demonstrated, an integral part of the EDKB project, for understanding and prioritizing EDs for testing, thus providing a basis for prioritizing chemicals for more definitive but expensive testing.

Environmental surveillance and monitoring—The next frontiers for high‐throughput toxicology

It is suggested that environmental surveillance and monitoring represent the next frontiers for high‐throughput toxicity testing and transform scientific characterization of potential hazards associated with exposure to complex mixtures of environmental contaminants.

Big Data in Chemical Toxicity Research: The Use of High-Throughput Screening Assays To Identify Potential Toxicants

High-throughput screening assays that measure the in vitro toxicity of environmental compounds have been widely applied as an alternative to in vivo animal tests of chemical toxicity and potential modeling and mining tools to use the current big data pool in chemical toxicity research are described.

Aligning Chemical Assessment Tools Across the Hazard‐Risk Continuum

A systematic framework to assist users in selecting hazard and risk assessment tools for given applications is proposed, which describes seven discrete categories of tools based on their information content, function, and the type of outputs produced.

NeurotoxKb: compilation, curation and exploration of a knowledgebase of environmental neurotoxicants specific to mammals

The first dedicated knowledgebase, NeurotoxKb, on environmental neurotoxicants specific to mammals is presented, using a detailed workflow to compile and standardize the observed neurotoxic effects for the potential neurotoxicant effects from 835 published studies with evidence of neurotoxicity specific to mammal.

t4 report1

Prelude to the road to the new generation of read-across approaches that can be applied in chemical safety assessment is highlighted, with several case studies using various big data sources described in this paper.

Database Management System for Prediction and Management of Occupational Health Hazards

The analysis of data collected from 2000 individuals of Jhansi and Lucknow districts of Uttar Pradesh, the socioeconomic status, education, hygiene status, occupation type, etc were found to be associated with proneness to the diseases.

Computational methods for early predictive safety assessment from biological and chemical data

Methods used to predict liabilities associated with structures of individual compounds, the article reviews the use of adverse event data and safety profiling panels, and the complexities of toxicology data from animal experiments and how these data can be mined.
