Chemicals, food additives, drugs, and other substances are tested for their possible to cause developmental or reproductive toxicity. Reproductive toxicity tests evaluate a substance's tendency to cause reproductive system effects, while developmental toxicity screening assesses the extent to which exposure to a substance might harm a developing embryo or unborn child. NTP established the Systematic Evaluation of the Application of Zebrafish in Toxicology program, led by NTP and NICEATM scientists, to make it possible for the wider fostering of zebrafish for toxicological testing. In 2016, SEAZIT team members carried out a collection of meetings with researchers considered to be experts in using zebrafish in toxicology researches. Some of these researchers, along with information science experts, took part in an April 2017 meeting that focused particularly on just how to improve zebrafish testing information analysis using ontologies.
