Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology - Part D: Genomics and Proteomics is pleased to announce a special issue on Ecotoxicogenomics and Environmental Science. All animals are exposed to chemical stressors in the environment, including pesticides, metals, and industrial products (e.g. PAHs, PBDEs, PFOAs). Understanding the mechanisms underlying toxicity exposures and animal physiology is paramount for protecting wildlife and developing safer chemicals. Microplastics, chemicals additives, and newly discovered perfluorinated compounds are emerging contaminants for which we know very little form a mechanistic point of view.
In this Special Issue, we are particularly interested in papers leveraging omics approaches (e.g. functional genomics, metagenomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, and lipidomics) to understand effects of contaminants on the health of organisms. We encourage the submission of topical reviews and manuscripts describing novel experimental, analytical, or bioinformatics approaches aimed at facilitating and improving understanding of how toxicants affect physiology.
