What Is ToxicoGenomica?

A multidisciplinary group of scientists and lawyers created ToxicoGenomica to provide fully integrated services for using genomic and systems biology data in civil litigation, and to help develop and utilize best practices related to the use of such information in civil litigation. Members of ToxicoGenomica have been involved in delivering this type of information in dozens of toxic tort cases around the country, and are dedicated to accelerating the dissemination of information about the applications of genomics and systems biology to issues involving disease causation. We have also have organized and sponsored workshops on the broader topic of the use of genomic information in various aspects of civil law, including case law, statutes, and regulations.

ArrayXpress’ investigational genetics and genomics studies are designed to work hand in glove with epidemiological, toxicological, medical, and environmental data to help determine causation. Genetics and genomics data can often indicate whether exposure and resulting DNA damage did or did not occur due to a particular toxicant, as well as, show the individual’s genetic predisposition through familial inheritance to a particular disease or disorder. ArrayXpress has had a long track record of working with pharmaceutical companies, energy companies, agriculture companies and many other product producers since 2002.
