Purpose of the site

This site is designed to centralise and disseminate information – whether obtained experimentally or generated by in silico tools – on the effects of mycotoxins, in order to identify research needs and facilitate their toxicological assessment. Similar data are standardised and then presented in a single unit to simplify comparisons. Additional information on mycotoxin-producing fungi is also provided, which may be expanded in the future to include other information (on remediation, mitigation, detection methods and occurrence, for example). This website therefore aims to help stakeholders faced with the issue of mycotoxins.

ANSES cannot be held responsible for any direct or indirect harm of any nature whatsoever resulting from the use, even partial, of the information on this site.
