Brand New Special Issue:
The Impact of Environmental Exposure on the Epigenome

Environmental exposures contribute to many diseases in part by causing epigenetic changes. The field of epigenetics is undergoing significant advancements in technology and methodology. The April 2014 Special Issue of Environmental and Molecular Mutagenesis highlights these advancements through reviews, commentaries and original research articles that discuss and demonstrate current approaches utilized to examine epigenetic changes caused by environmental exposures. The issue highlights the use of genome-wide and quantitative site-specific techniques that allow for the study of more data points resulting in improved statistical significance and pathway analysis. The issue also features the use of several human cohorts and mouse studies that allow for correlation of levels of specific epigenetic marks with maternal or personal exposure levels. The understanding of what epigenetic changes occur in response to exposure, when and where they occur and how to monitor them will ultimately allow for the development of biomarkers of exposure and a greater understanding of how exposure causes disease, which will potentially lead to improvements in prevention and treatment.
