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, developed by the National Library of Medicine (NLM), is a web-based system of databases providing information on toxicology, hazardous chemicals, and the environment. Databases fall under theExpand
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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
Prioritizing chemicals of ecological concern in Great Lakes tributaries using high-throughput screening data and adverse outcome pathways.
The EAR approach provided a screening-level assessment for evidence-based prioritization of chemicals and sites with potential for adverse biological effects and provides testable hypotheses to help focus those efforts. Expand
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.

Summary Read-across, i.e. filling toxicological data gaps by relating to similar chemicals, for which test data are available, is usually done based on chemical similarity. Besides structure andExpand
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. Expand
