This review presents a brief and non-comprehensive overview of a representative sampling of some of the broad array of toxicology-related learning, tutorial and information resources now becoming widely available to educators, health professionals, students and the general public via the Internet.Results: A broad variety of useful learning and reference resources in the general fields of toxicology and the environmental health sciences is provided to introduce the reader to the diverse types of information currently available. Distance education and educational media resources are also available online in the field of toxicology. As molecular biology and computational tools improve, new areas within toxicology such as structural activity relationship analysis, mutational spectra databases and toxicogenomics, now have resources online as well.Conclusion: The sources and Internet links contained in this review will hopefully constitute a useful resource of basic toxicology information that should be readily accessible to most if not all Iranianreaders.
