Explores the role of biomarker data in evaluating the impact of human environmental and occupational exposure to pesticides. Focuses on two types of biomarkers: residue analysis of parent compounds or metabolites and end points representing interactions between xenobiotic and endogenous
components. Characterizes the molecular basis of various biomarker methods and examines structure-activity relationships. Surveys biomarker measurement methods currently in use and examines methods for biomarker data analysis and applications of these methods to risk assessment.
