Abstract
Toxic contaminants are a serious danger to military personnel, with effects that may only appear after weeks, or months. Traditional diagnostic tools focus on levels of specific markers for certain diseases or toxins. When these specific markers do notshow high levels, it is difficult to identify exposure to several toxins, each of which may not be toxic alone, but in combination may be extremely dangerous, to genetically predisposed people. Several biotechnology techniques are being developed thatgather huge amounts of data in a single measurement, such as genomics (DNA microarrays), proteomics, and metabonomics. Analysis of whole-system data with bioinformatic tools (
