Current toxicity testing protocols are limited in the number of compounds that can be assessed, and so there are a multitude of chemical compounds found in the environment for which there are no toxicity data. Toxicogenomics, the study of the interaction between the genome, proteome or metabolome and adverse biological endpoints due to exposure to toxicants, provides a means to generate toxicity data for a large number of compounds in a short time. Toxicogenomic studies can also provide insight into the modes of toxicity of compounds, and can allow the identification of susceptibility and exposure biomarkers. All such data can be integrated to give an improved assessment of the toxic potential of an untested compound.
This special issue will consider research and review articles concerning any aspects of toxicogenomics. Studies focusing on emerging concerns in toxicology such as nanotoxicology and epigenetic toxicity are particularly encouraged.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
