Abstract

The stated purpose of this book is to provide a synthesis of genetics and toxicology and thus an orientation for both toxicologists and geneticists in the overlapping field of genetic toxicology. A unique meshing of both the basic scientific considerations as well as the practical applications is required in order to meet such an objective and in general this has been very well accomplished. The first chapter gives an historical overview of the evolution of the area with citation of relevant contributions which led to the recognition of this important discipline.

The topics in this book cover a complete range with considerations of gene structure and function, the cell cycle and chromosome mechanics in both somatic and germ cells, through the consequences of genotoxic effects in humans and other mammals, approaches to screening of chemicals as well as genetic risk estimation and applications of genetic toxicology to environmental and human monitoring.
