 Genomic integrity is the active maintenance of all* the genetic elements in the cells of an organism for proper dynamic function                                                                                                            (aka health)


Follow us! @AGIRgenomes

AGiR aims to promote research into reliable and quantitative measures of genomic integrity and to create greater awareness of the ways one can easily protect genomic integrity.  
Thank you in advance for your feedback!

This non-profit association is for everyone, from the general public to scientific researchers, in order to provide information about what genomic integrity entails and how it can be protected.

While there are some technical terms and references to original peer-reviewed research publications in the site, this is no reason for worry (even if you aren't an expert in something like cell biology or genetics).  

Many of these terms are further defined (see the intro, right), and maybe you will (also) find that seeing actual data is often helpful. 
Have a look!  
Go ahead and send in any questions!  (use the Contact Us link, above left)
 
In the end, the idea here is to simplify some complex issues with the aim of increasing general awareness and ultimately finding out more!
 
AGiR: providing information and promoting research on genomic integrity!

Introduction to Genomic Integrity!

Genomic integrity is threatened by many common substances, including ingredients in personal care products.  Providing information and promoting research are the primary aims of this non-profit association, Action for Genomic Integrity through Research (AGiR)!
