Description

Highlighting the latest advances in molecular biology, mathematical modeling, quantitative risk assessment, and biopharmaceutical development, this reference presents how current scientific applications and methods impact and revolutionize mainstream toxicological research. Presenting findings from disciplines that will impact the future of toxicology in years to come including proteomics, toxicogenomics, and metabonomics, this expertly conceived guide explores toxicological issues of particular world interest, such as toxicity of nanomaterials, military jet fuels, and genetically-modified foods.
