Environmental and Molecular Mutagenesis
Environmental and Molecular Mutagenesis publishes original research
articles on environmental mutagenesis. It will publish manuscripts in the
six general areas of mechanisms of mutagenesis; genomics; DNA damage;
replication, recombination, and repair; public health; and DNA technology.
Subsumed under these six general areas are subject matters that are
appropriate for inclusion in EMM.
Mechanisms of Mutagenesis
spontaneous and induced mutation in indigenous and transgene systems
genomic instability mutation rates the consequence of mutation on fitness
and evolution of organisms
small genomes and comparative genomics
Indentification, detection, characterization, and quantification of DNA
damage metabolism of chemicals into DNA-damaging agents
Replication, Recombination, and Repair
genetic and biochemical mechanisms
genetic and infectious disease
insertions, deletions, rearrangements, aneuploidy
Issues impacting basic human health such as cancer, genetic disease,
aging, or acute and chronic disease methodologies that will lead to better
methods to determine risk and help to define regulatory policy
DNA microarrays, differential dispaly, and mutation detection analysis
novel sequencing strategies bioimaging techniques bioinformatics and
The study of environmental mutagenesis is a multidisciplinary activity.
The journal is intended for investigators in such fields as genetics,
microbiology, biochemistry, basic cancer research, radiation biology, and
toxicology. It should as well be of interest to a wide audience of
scientists in other areas of biology, chemistry, and medicine that are
engaged in public health research or in formulating public health policy.
Available by subscription only.
