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):
