Exposure to electro
-
magnetic fields (EMF): investigations of
mechanisms to support risk assessment and reduce
uncertainty









Proposal
from Latvia




Yeast cell
s

will be used as
a
model of human organism cells.





Yeast

cells

will

be

cultivated

in

the

conditions

of

extremely

low

frequency

magnetic

fields

and

then

will

be

subjected

to

physiological,

cytological,

biochemical,

biophysical

tests

and

physical

nano

scale

measurements
.




Irradiation

of

yeast

cells

will

be

provided

in

the

room

that

is

screened

from

external

electromagnetic

radiation
.

equipment

including

microscopes
,

atom

force

microscopes,

RT

PCR

and

others

will

be

used

in

the

study
.
