Special issue on Tux-Hub: an internet based platform facilitating access to toxicological information sources that has been already launched to the public. Click here to download
Dear friends of HEROIC,
in this special issue we would like to introduce you the Tox-Hub platform through which HEROIC intends to close some of the gaps and remove impediments linked to the accessibility of scientific data.
A number of databases reporting toxicological or ecotoxicological data are currently available. However, to date, data are stored in heterogenous environments and formats so that the practitioner is faced with the time consuming task of separate access to each database. Overall, integration of ecotoxicological and toxicological information spread around the many existing databases is nowadays not possible. Therefore, there is a strong need to create an integrative tool to facilitate searching of all available toxicological and ecotoxicological information among different sources of information.
To this end, the Tox-Hub has been developed by HEROIC partner CSIC as part of the HEROIC project as an interactive internet platform enabling the simultaneous search and retrieval of information from already existing toxicological and ecotoxicological databases.
We invite you to use this tool, we hope that you find it useful, and we are looking forward to hearing your feedback. We hope that you find this information useful, and we are looking forward to hearing your feedback.
