On the cover: This image shows alignment of gamma-H2AX foci along more or less straight-line tracks as expected for these ions. The foci with color indicate a total of 52 foci per 4 keratinocytes or 13 foci per keratinocyte. These four cells are a tiny sample of the 236 cells that were quantified to give an overall average of 7.88 foci per keratinocyte for this type of radiation and dose. See the paper by Fredric J. Burns and colleagues on page 157 for more information.
