Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Toxins are produced by many prokaryotes, plants, and animals.  They are poisonous substances and capable of causing diseases or even death when introduced into the body tissues of living organisms. When toxins are released into agricultural products and environment, timely detection is crucial for planning an effective response. However, the detection of toxins is often difficult due to the combination of the complex sample matrix effect and the low dose of toxins needed to cause the illness. This special issue highlights detection of toxins in food, biological and environmental samples using methods ranging from classic cell culture to cutting edge molecular approaches.
