Ecotoxicogenomics might help solving open questions that cannot be answered by standard ecotoxicity tests currently used in environmental risk assessment. Changes in gene expression are claimed to serve potentially as early warning indicators for environmental effects and as sensitive and specific ecotoxicological end points. Ecotoxicogenomics focus on the lowest rather than the highest levels of biological organization. Our aim was to explore the links between gene expression responses and… CONTINUE READING
