Discovering TOXNET

TOXNET is a suite of toxicology databases from the NLM. We’re prepping for some upcoming instruction on TOXNET ourselves, and wanted to share something we found today. This article is indexed in PubMed and the full text is freely available. What’s more, it’s written by project scientists at the Specialized Information Services division of NLM. The TOXNET experts!

On to the reading!
