ECOTOX Knowledgebase Virtual Training
EPA’s ECOTOXicology Knowledgebase (ECOTOX) is a comprehensive, publicly available tool providing single chemical environmental toxicity data on aquatic and terrestrial species.

Specifically targeted for decision-makers, this training will provide—

• An overview of the database content and function
• Application-oriented use-case demonstrations
• Opportunities for participatory learning and engagement

ECOTOX was developed to provide risk assessors and researchers with relevant toxicity data that have been identified and curated from the peer-reviewed literature and government reports. Through curation of single chemical ecotoxicity data, this tool supports ecological risk assessment and management with methods that are thorough, cost-effective and transparent. New data are added to ECOTOX every quarter and are made available on a public-facing website (www.epa.gov/ecotox).

This virtual training will feature Dr. Jennifer Olker, Coordinator for the ECOTOX Knowledgebase, Center for Computational Toxicology and Exposure, Office of Research and Development, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The training, hosted on Zoom, will include plenary presentations, small group discussions, and hands-on application of your new skills.

Agenda:
• Introduction and overview
• Review of tool and tool demonstration
• Breakout sessions: Case studies
• Conclusion

May 17, 2022 12:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
