Summary of the NCEA Colloquium on Current Use and Future Needs of Genomics in Ecological and Human Health Risk Assessment (Final Report)
The two goals of the colloquium were to identify: 1) how genomics data may improve risk assessment and, 2) what the current and future needs of EPA Program and Regional Offices are regarding the area of genomics (e.g., tools, data, case studies). The colloquium was an internal EPA meeting that was held to explore the use of genomics in human health and ecological risk assessment. The colloquium report summarizes discussions that took place at the colloquium and has not been peer-reviewed.
Since one of the roles of NCEA is to develop and improve methods for EPA risk assessment, and genomics information is rapidly improving and increasing, a need was identified to assess the current thinking about the use of genomics data in risk assessment within EPA.
