Abstract

The biological process in which nucleic acids are involved generally require the participation of metal ions. The same metal ions which are essential to biological function at one concentration may be harmful at other concentrations. For this reason I shall not restrict the metals to be discussed to those commonly considered toxic, even though the interest of this symposium is focused upon toxicity.
