New database added to TOXNET

The Comparative Toxicogenomics Database (CTD) is now part of the National Library of Medicine’s TOXNET (Toxicology Data Network http://toxnet.nlm.nih.gov).  The CTD contains manually curated data describing cross-species chemical-gene/protein interactions and chemical-and gene-disease relationships to provide insights into the molecular mechanisms underlying variable susceptibility and environmentally influenced diseases. These data also provide insight into complex chemical-gene and protein interaction networks.

Search chemicals (by name or CAS registry number) and see the related genes and diseases, and then, via TOXNET’s CTD results, see the complete CTD site for further details.

Find CTD on the left navigation panel, under Additional Resource.
