Epigenetics, Second Edition

Second Revised Edition

Edited by C. David Allis, Marie-Laure Caparros, Thomas Jenuwein, and Danny Reinberg

A Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press Publication

  • The 2nd edition is expanded from 24 to 36 expertly written chapters that cover the basic molecular mechanisms underpinning epigenetic regulation
  • New is the inclusion of the expanding structural data on the machinery that modifies histones and DNA, giving weight and understanding to the molecular workings of chromatin and epigenetics
  • Findings from studies of development, reprogramming, and disease highlight not only the importance of epigenetics but also the potential for epigenetic therapy, as illustrated in chapters covering the immune and neuronal systems, and cancer
  • A major resource for those working in the field, as well as a suitable text for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses on gene regulation
