EXTOXNET: Glossary


The database summarizes the results from aquatic acute toxicity tests conducted by the USGS CERC  located in Columbia, Missouri.

The Comparative Toxicogenomics Database (CTD) is a publicly available research resource that curates scientific data describing relationships between chemicals, genes, and human diseases. A primary goal of CTD is to advance the understanding of the effects of environmental chemicals on human health.
