Environmental and Molecular Mutagenesis
Environ Mol Mutagen
ISSN (printed): 0893-6692. ISSN (electronic): 1098-2280.
Environmental and Molecular Mutagenesis publishes original research articles on environmental mutagenesis. It will publish manuscripts in the six general areas of mechanisms of mutagenesis; genomics; DNA damage; replication recombination and repair; public health; and DNA technology. Subsumed under these six general areas are subject matters that are appropriate for inclusion in EMM. Mechanisms of Mutagenesis spontaneous and induced mutation in indigenous and transgene systems genomic instability mutation rates the consequence of mutation on fitness and evolution of organisms Genomics molecular epidemiology genetic susceptibility gene expression biomarkers small genomes and comparative genomics DNA Damage Indentification detection characterization and quantification of DNA damage metabolism of chemicals into DNA-damaging agents Replication Recombination and Repair genetic and biochemical mechanisms genetic and infectious disease insertions deletions rearrangements aneuploidy Public Health Issues impacting basic human health such as cancer genetic disease aging or acute and chronic disease methodologies that will lead to better methods to determine risk and help to define regulatory policy DNA Technology DNA microarrays differential dispaly and mutation detection analysis novel sequencing strategies bioimaging techniques bioinformatics and functional genomics The study of environmental mutagenesis is a multidisciplinary activity. The journal is intended for investigators in such fields as genetics microbiology biochemistry basic cancer research radiation biology and toxicology. It should as well be of interest to a wide audience of scientists in other areas of biology chemistry and medicine that are engaged in public health research or in formulating public health policy.
