This is enabling us to start harvesting the benefits from years of investment in terms of technology, time, and (of course) money. It is therefore timely to bring together leading toxicologists with a wide variety of scientific aims in this book to demonstrate how microarray technology can be successfully applied to different research areas. This book transects biology from bacteria to human, from ecologically relevant sentinel organisms to well-characterized model species, and represents the full toxicogenomics arena from exploratory "blue sky" science to the prospects for incorporation into regulatory frameworks.
* Reviews some of the first really fruitful studies made in this area
* Covers different organisms ranging from humans to model species and environmental sentinels
* Provides a broad view of the area, increasing its attractiveness to researchers working in a variety of specialties
