Excerpt: Toxicogenomics is a new undertaking in the pursuit of human genes relevant to health risk from environmental toxicants and related stress. Such stress spans a range of dire threats in the human condition from ultraviolet to blue light, from particulate diesel exhaust to complex chemical mixtures in the air, from threats in reused airplane air to threats in herbal remedies, from threats in the food supply from pesticides to threats from genetically modified organisms. This incredible range of interest is embodied in the Environmental Genome Project, sponsored and maintained in the interest of health by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), and about which much has already been written (1?4). The aims of the Environmental Genome Project include a characterization of important genetic polymorphisms that alter protein function to the benefit or to the determent of individuals upon exposure to environmental stress. The completion of the human genome sequencing and hopefully its successful annotation is a major spur to accelerated progress in the realm of environmental response genes. The program coordinates a robust suite of extramurally funded research grants, Environmental Health Centers and intramural research projects.
