Genetic toxicology

Genetic toxicology is the study of the effects of chemical and physical agents on genetic material. It includes the study of DNA damage in living cells that causes cancer, but it also examines changes in DNA that can be inherited from one generation to the next.

Genetic toxicology explains mechanisms of heredity by providing tools to study DNA and RNA structure. It also includes Genotoxicity testing to determine if a substrate will influence genetic material or may cause cancer. Genotoxicity testing can be performed in bacterial, yeast, and mammalian cells. Genetic pharmacological medicine studies square measure conducted to assess the potential for induction of genetic mutations or body injury. Genetic toxicity testing is needed for all categories of chemicals and medicines, however its conduct will dissent from compound to compound to account for regulative necessities and selection and style of assays.
