The chapter discusses mathematical modeling and its importance to risk assessment, particularly the current effort to reevaluate the risk of exposure to dioxins using more of the biological information available to risk assessors. The work represents some of the most extensive Agency efforts to develop a 'biological based risk assessment.'
