Tox21 Scientists Prioritize Compounds to Advance Research on Mitochondrial Damage

As part of the Tox21 collaboration, scientists developed of an analytical approach to enable researchers to prioritize environmental chemicals for their ability to disrupt mitochondria, the power generators of the cell. Their work could eventually lead to a wider use of large-scale chemical screening techniques to predict a chemical compound’s toxicity in humans. More on this topic can be found at:
