Computer models could replace animal testing

A study suggests that advanced algorithms working from large chemical databases can predict a new chemical's toxicity better than standard animal tests. The computer-based approach could replace many animal tests commonly used during consumer product testing. It could also evaluate more chemicals than animal testing, a change that could lead to wider safety assessments.
