Book Description

Fueled partially by large, well-publicized efforts such as the Human Genome Project, genomic research is a rapidly growing area in multiple biological disciplines, including toxicology. Much of this potential, however, has been discussed in the literature and at technical meetings only in relatively broad terms, making it difficult to assess exactly how data generated from new genomics technologies might actually impact or benefit the risk assessment process.

Table of Contents

Application of Genomics to Screening-Level Risk Assessments. Application of Genomics to Tiered Testing. Application of Genomics to “Full” Ecological Risk Assessments. Application of Genomics to Environmental Monitoring. Application of Genomics to Environmental Remediation/Resource Recovery.
