Topics to be covered:
• murine models of radiation-induced leukaemia
• cytogenetic approaches and key molecular events
• physical radiation dosimetry
• importance of radiation quality
• target cells and post-irradiation metabolism
• recombination mediated translocation pathways
• new models for research
