    The global plant biomass represents over 90% of the total mass of the living
    biota. The food and feed chain of the biosphere begins with plants, however,
    the genotoxic effects of chemical pollutants on plant systems have often
    been overlooked. Plants are exposed to many environmental pollutants that
    are globally dispersed through aerial or aqueous pathways. In addition,
    agronomic crops as well as other plants are deliberately exposed to pesticides
    and other chemicals applied in modern agriculture. These pollutants
    may be not only a serious hazard for the plants themselves, but also for
    animals, including people who use these plants for food or feed.
    Assays to detect the genotoxicity of these pollutants are at present not
    available for most plant species. This limitation hampers or prevents the
    detection of the genotoxicity of xenobiotics in plants growing, for example,
    on polluted soil. To overcome the limitation, the Comet assay can be applied
    to detect DNA damage in plants. Although this technique has been primarily applied to animal cells, the incorporation of the Comet assay with plant
    tissues significantly extends the utility of plants in basic and applied
    studies in environmental mutagenesis and toxicology. In theory, the Comet
    assay can be used with every plant species.
    This review focuses on the Comet assay in higher plants. Data on the Comet
    assay in lower plants (fungi and algae) are presented in a recent review.
