SEARCH TIP: Refining Searches by Chemical and Effect Groups.

To review genetic effect data for Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDEs) effects, the following ECOTOX query can be completed by searching the Effect Group 'Genetics' and the Chemical group 'Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDEs)' in the ECOTOX Advanced Query.

  1. Open Advanced Database Query
  2. On the Chemical tab, click on 'Predefined Chemical Groups', select 'Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers' (PBDEs) under 'Organic Compounds' list.
    1. This selection can be further refined by selecting 'View/Edit List Entries' and removing chemicals. For this example all chemicals were searched.
  3. On the Test Results tab, click on 'Effect Measurements', select 'Genetic' from the 'Cellular group'.
    1. To refine Effect Measurement group, select 'View/Edit Effect Measurements'.
    2. Select Measurements to remove. In this example no measurements were removed.
