[Featured Review] Unique molecular mechanisms for maintenance and alteration of genetic information in the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae
In this review, authors describe recent findings on the unconventional molecular mechanisms of DNA damage response and DNA double-strand break (DSB) repair in the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Previous research on genetic and phenotypic instabilities observed in a clonal population of clinically-derived S. cerevisiae is also introduced.

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.
Professor Takashi Yagi heads the Department of Biological Sciences, Graduate School of Science, Osaka Prefecture University, Japan. His laboratory, Molecular and Cellular Genetics, performs molecular studies on DNA damage and mutations, and on substances disturbing human epigenetic and transcriptional systems.
