Description

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.
