Book Description

DNA Methylation: Approaches, Methods and Applications describes the relation DNA methylation has to gene silencing in disease, and explores its promising role in treating cancer. Written by leaders in the field, this exceptional compilation of articles outlines the best techniques to use when addressing questions concerning the cytosine methylation status of genomic DNA. It includes concepts, experimental models, and clinical uses of demethylating agents. The book provides a balance between articles clarifying methodological details and more general review chapters that offer broad biological perspectives on DNA methylation. This is an invaluable handbook for researchers and clinicians interested in genetics and molecular biology, particularly epigenetic therapies and gene silencing.

Reviews

"… written by leaders in the field. … interesting for both researchers and clinicians. It is an excellent summary of the subject for scientists starting in the field of epigenetics and it is also a reference book for professionals already familiar with the subject."
