    Recent advances in cytogenetics have provided some important new methods for measuring chromosome damage in cells exposed to environmental mutagens and carcinogens. Potentially the most useful new approach to mutation testing, and the one which has attracted the most interest from those involved in aquatic toxicology, is sister chromatid exchange (SCE), a sensitive indicator of chromosome damage based upon the switching of labelled arm segments within chromosomes.
