Abstract : This technical note is the first in a series of three that outline and describe the principal methods that have been developed to test the potential of environmental contaminants for causing mutagenic, carcinogenic, and teratogenic effects. This technical note describes methods used to discern genotoxic effects at the subcellular level, while the second in the series (EEDPA-04-25) describes methods used to discern genotoxic effects at the cellular and organ/organism level. In the third technical note (EEDP-04-26), recent literature citations for each topic are listed to assist readers in locating source information. Technical Note EEDP-04-26 also includes a glossary of terms.
