What's new in G&E

Professor Masami Yamada took over the role of Editor-in-Chief from Professor Takashi Yagi.

Genes and Environment has been recently accepted for inclusion in Clarivate Analytics's Emerging Source Citation Index (ESCI)

[2017 Best Paper Award]

In this article, Kanemaru et al. desirbe recent findings on an important role in DNA damage tolerance through translesion DNA synthesis with DNA polymerase kappa, especially its protective roles in terms of genotoxicity induced by mitomycin C (MMC), a therapeutic agent that induces bulky DNA adducts and crosslinks in DNA.

APC Discount for JEMS members
Members of Japanese Environmental Mutagen Society(JEMS)  are entitled to receive discount on Article Processing Charge

Free APC for researchers in Asia
We now offer a full APC waiver to the submissions from the countries where Asian Association of the Environmental Mutagen Societies (AAEMS)–partnering societies are located (excluding Japan). Those countries are Australia, China, India, Iran, South Korea, Philippines and Thailand.

In order to receive discount/full waiver, author has to  submit the waiver code during the process of manuscript submission. Authors eligible for these arrangements should contact the journal (editor@j-ems.org) prior to submission and request the code. 

About JEMS

The mission of the Japanese Environmental Mutagen Society is to discover how environmental mutagens affect all organisms, and to promote and apply this knowledge to protect human health and our environment. The Japanese Environmental Mutagen Society was founded in 1972, and since then the society has hosted annual conferences and open symposia on timely topics. The society is a member of the Asian Association of the Environmental Mutagen Societies and the International Association of Environmental Mutagenesis and Genomics Societies.

Aims and scope

Genes and Environment is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that aims to accelerate communications among global scientists working in the field of genes and environment. The journal publishes articles across a broad range of topics including environmental mutagenesis and carcinogenesis, environmental genomics and epigenetics, molecular epidemiology, genetic toxicology and regulatory sciences.

About the Editor

New Content ItemMasami Yamada studied bacterial genetics and got a PhD degree from Osaka University. Since 1990, using genetic engineering techniques, she has constructed many strains from standard tester strains for the Ames test at the National Institute of Health Sciences, Tokyo. Such strains are useful for research fields on environmental mutagens.
Strain requests come to her every year from domestic, Asia, Europe, North America, South America, and other countries. Currently, she teaches Biology and Genetic Engineering at National Defense Academy of Japan.
