Select terms in this resource are linked to a peer-reviewed glossary and quizzes are included. ToxLearn can be useful for users of NLM toxicology databases, undergraduates studying toxicology or related disciplines, and others seeking a basic understanding of the field.
ToxLearn is an update of NLM Toxicology Tutorials, which was designed to provide a basic understanding of toxicology as an aide for users of toxicology literature contained in the National Library of Medicine toxicological and chemical databases. ToxLearn will update and expand on that effort.
