The millions of natural and/or synthetic substances with the unknown biological effects found in our environment, their mutagenic and carcinogenic potentials are still unknown. For this reason, it is very important to evaluate the mutagenic and carcinogenic potentials of natural and/or synthetic substances that are placed in our daily lives. Considering the cost and duration of the tests, researchers have developed tests are easy to use and inexpensive in a short time. The most common short-term test systems are bacterial mutagenicity tests. Various tests for the detection of mutagenic and carcinogenic activities of chemicals in bacteria, insects, plants and all mammalian cells for DNA damage, chromosome alterations, and cell cycle are often used at the same time. Recently retrotransposon based systems came into consideration. Use of various molecular markers in an effort to establish high-throughput screening methods that could revolutionize future toxicology studies.
