13th International Conference on Environmental Mutagens

Maintaining Genomic Health in a Changing World

52nd Annual Meeting of the EMGS

August 28 - September 2, 2021 - Ottawa Canada



Workshops will also be offered, spanning the most cutting edge new technologies for measuring toxic effects to the genome (i.e., transcriptomics including single-cell sequencing, error-corrected sequencing), to modern versions of conventional tests (i.e., Mini Ames and comet assay workshop) and advances in hazard and risk assessment (i.e., reactive botanicals and in silico approaches): 


    Workshop No. 1: 8AM to Noon | Mini versus standard Ames assays: what have we learned from the OECD’s comparative evaluation (Chair: Birgit Mertens, BELGIUM). Governor General I Room

    Workshop No. 2: 8AM to Noon | Application of computational modeling and bioinformatics in toxicological hazard and risk assessment (Chairs: Julia Rager, UNC-Chapel Hill, USA; Marc Beal, Health Canada, CANADA). Governor General II Room

    Workshop No. 3: 8AM to Noon | Time to solve a crisis? Can risk stemming from exposures to plant-based DNA-reactive pyrrolizidine alkaloids be managed using relative potency factors? (Chairs: Stefan Pfuhler and Lin Ge, Procter & Gamble, USA). Governor General III Room

    Workshop No. 4: 8AM to Noon | Methods and applications of the CometChip and additional cell microarray technologies (Chairs: Simran Kaushal and Norah Owiti, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA). Quebec Room

    Workshop No. 5: 8AM to Noon | In silico approaches in genetic toxicology: Application Ames QSAR to ICH-M7 (Chairs: Keiichi Sugiyama, National Institute of Health Sciences, JAPAN; Catrin Hasselgren, Genentech, USA). Ontario Room
