BIOL 405 Basic Environmental Toxicology

This course provides a study showing how chemical principles can be used to understand the behavior and fate of xenobiotics (foreign substances) in biological organisms, and what detriment can occur to the ecosystem to which organisms belong. Basic biochemistry, routes of entry, bioaccumulation, xenobiotic metabolism, mutagenesis, and carcinogenesis are the topics covered.
