What is its chemical identity? How much of it is present? How can we assay its toxic effect, and what is the minimum level at which this toxic effect can be detected? A number of important fields are included: 1. Analytical toxicology is a branch of analytical chemistry concerned with the identification and assay of toxic chemicals and their metabolites in biological and environmental materials. 2. Genomics. The sometimes stated distinction that genomics deals with genomes while molecular biology deals with single genes is unrealistic and unnecessary; it is more appropriate to regard genomics as an aspect of molecular biology that deals not only with genomes and gene expression but also such important aspects as genetic polymorphisms, particularly single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs).

A dense fog at ground level coupled with smoke from coal fireplaces caused severe smog lasting more than a week. The smog was so heavy that daylight visibility was only a few meters, and bus conductors had to walk in front of the buses to guide the drivers through the streets. Two days after the smog began, the death rate began to climb, and between December 5 and December 9, there were an estimated 4000 deaths above the normal daily count. The chief causes of death were bronchitis, pneumonia, and associated respiratory complaints.
