European researchers are to develop a publicly-available toxicogenomics
database to aid chemical risk assessment and reduce animal testing in this field within the next three years.
The diXa project, coordinated by Jos Kleinjans from the the Maastricht University Medical Centre and involving researchers from Germany, Switzerland, the UK and the European Joint Research Centre (JRC) in Italy, will combine information from seven toxicogenomics databases in addition to data on human diseases.
This information will be freely-available, creating a source for experts to more accurately and easily assess the toxicity of chemicals and minimising the need for additional animal testing.
