Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Environmental contaminants have been closely linked to the development of various diseases and are the cause of tremendous public concern. Numerous types of contaminants, including heavy metals and organic pollutants, have been classified as Group I carcinogenic agents by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), demonstrating the important role of genotoxicity in the risk assessment of environmental contaminants. This Special Issue intends to address cutting-edge research regarding the genotoxicity of environmental contaminants. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the genetic and epigenetic toxicity of contaminants to humans and the ecosystem and the genotoxicity and related mechanisms of emerging contaminants. We also welcome studies regarding newly developed technologies for the evaluation of the genotoxicity of  contaminants and advanced approaches in the prevention and detoxification of environmental-contaminant-induced genotoxicity.
