Genetic Toxicology is a discipline in medical science that deals with the subject of toxicology. It mainly refers to the damage of genetic material of individuals that may have occurred due to the presence of toxic substrates. It leads to various genetic abnormalities like double stranded breakage, point mutations, DNA crosslinking, deletions, insertions, etc. These abnormalities may sometimes lead to cancer. There are various assays that can be used to analyze these problems such as COMET assay, toxicology tests, etc.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
