The National Library of Medicine (NLM) Tox Town City neighborhood has updated its graphics with a new photorealistic look. It, as well as the Town and Southwest scenes, is now in HTML 5. Location and chemical information remains the same, but the new graphics allow users to better identify with real-life city locations.

Tox Town can be accessed on a variety of personal electronic devices, including Ipads, Ipad minis, and tablets.
