A section of Toxins (ISSN 2072-6651).
The “Mycotoxins” section of Toxins is designated to the submission of high quality manuscripts that report new investigations into all aspects of research on mycotoxins, including but not limited to: mechanisms of action; mycotoxin transport; mycotoxin detection strategies; structure–activity relationships; binding agents and deactivators of mycotoxins; mycotoxin biosynthesis; mycotoxin evolution and classification; and clinical effects and case reports. The editors will also consider reviews that summarize current thinking or present controversial viewpoints to stimulate further discussion. Short communications that report important self-contained observations are also welcome.
