Conference paper


A negative result of scientific and technological progress is the increasing pollution of the environment by physical, chemical, and biological factors. Of particular hazard are factors possessing mutagenic properties, since they can cause hereditary diseases in people and either significant changes in the structure of natural populations or even the extinction of certain species.
