Heritable Mutation and Disease Special Interest Group


Heritable Mutation and Disease SIG Agenda for Annual Meeting in Orlando


Plan on attending the upcoming Heritable Mutation & Disease SIG Meeting in Monterey!


 The Heritable Mutation and Disease Special Interest Group is for scientists interested in heritable mutagenesis, the challenges of finding human genomic DNA damaging agents, germ-cell and stem-cell mutagens, and the consequences of these mutations to health.

 

Interests

  • The study of germ cell biology as it relates to heritable mutagenesis.
  • Characterization of heritable (germline) mutagenesis in the etiology of disease.
  • Determining if deleterious heritable mutations arise through actions of exogenous chemical, physical or biological agents.
  • Interpreting the consequences of heritable alterations to the devising methods through use of new technologies for studying presumptive human mutagens.
  • Understanding new processes (e.g., epigenetics) and their role in genomic stability.
  • Serving as a focal point for discussions of heritable genomic and stem-cell mutagenesis research.
  •
