[Featured Research] Development of a new quantitative structure–activity relationship model for predicting Ames mutagenicity of food flavor chemicals using StarDrop™ auto-Modeller™
Food flavors are relatively low molecular weight chemicals with unique odor-related functional groups that may also be associated with mutagenicity. These chemicals are often difficult to test for mutagenicity by the Ames test because of their low production and peculiar odor. Authors developed a new QSAR model to be applied for this testing.

[Featured Research] Study of the probable genotoxic effects of Zolone (Phosalone) exposure in mice bone marrow derived cells
Approximately, 2 million tonnes of pesticides are utilized annually worldwide. Phosalone (Pln), an organophosphorus pesticide, acts as an insecticide and acaricide to control pests of crops such as nuts, citrus fruits, pomegranates, stone fruits, grapes, potatoes, and artichokes. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the possible genotoxic effects following exposure to Pln in the cells derived from mouse red bone marrow.

About the Editor
Masami 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.
Low-dose radiation from A-bombs elongated lifespan and reduced cancer mortality relative to un-irradiated individuals
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, health and biological sciences, environmental genomics and epigenetics, molecular epidemiology, genetic toxicology and regulatory sciences.
