A section of Mutation Research

Mutation Research: Genetic Toxicology and Environmental Mutagenesis (MRGTEM) publishes papers advancing knowledge in the field of genetic toxicology. Papers are welcomed in the following areas:

New developments in genotoxicity testing of chemical agents (e.g., in methodology of assay systems and interpretation of results).

Alternatives to and refinement of the use of animals in genotoxicity testing.

Nano-genotoxicology, the study of genotoxicity hazards and risks related to novel man-made nanomaterials.

Studies of epigenetic changes in relation to genotoxic effects.

The use of structure-activity relationships in predicting genotoxic effects.

The isolation and chemical characterization of novel environmental mutagens.

The measurement of genotoxic effects in human populations, when accompanied by quantitative measurements of environmental or occupational exposures.

The application of novel technologies for assessing the hazard and risks associated with genotoxic substances (e.g., OMICS or other high-throughput approaches to genotoxicity testing).

Telomere biology as an endpoint for examination of the effects of chemicals and other environmental exposures.

MRGTEM is now accepting submissions for a new section of the journal, "Current Topics in Genotoxicity Testing," that will be dedicated to the discussion of current issues relating to design, interpretation, and strategic use of genotoxicity tests. This section is envisaged to include discussions relating to the development of new international testing guidelines, but also to wider topics in the field. The evaluation of contrasting or opposing viewpoints is welcomed as long as the presentation is in accordance with the journal’s aims, scope, and policies.



MRGTEM supports and follows the general direction proposed by all major societies in the field part of the International Association of Environmental Mutagenesis and Genomics Societies (IAEMGS):
