Abstract
The GENE-TOX (evaluation of current status of bioassays in genetic toxicology) is a systematic scientific evaluation of selected bioassays currently used for detecting mutagenicity and presumptive carcinogenicity of chemicals. This program is sponsored and directed by the Office of Testing and Evaluation (OTE) within the Office of Pesticides and Toxic Substances (OPTS), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Its primary purpose is to aid EPA in establishing standard genetic testing and evaluation procedures for the regulation of toxic substances. On a broader scale, the data compiled through this program and its appraisals of existing methodology for determining mutagenicity and presumptive carcinogenicity will be invaluable to scientists working in genetic toxicology and related areas.
