Update of ToxTutor Available
The National Library of Medicine has updated its online ToxTutor course. ToxTutor is a self-paced tutorial for users of NLM chemical and toxicology databases that covers the key principles of toxicology.
The August 2018 release of ToxTutor adds “The Microbiome” as a new topic, expands content on alternatives to animal testing and human-on-a-chip testing approaches, and includes induced pluripotent stem cells as an emerging approach for toxicity testing. The tutorial has also added more content on adverse outcome pathways and new sections on “Intuitive Toxicology and Risk Communication” (including content on uncertainty) and “Environmental Toxicology, Environmental Health, and One Health.”
