The field of epigenetics has played a major role at the forefront not only of molecular biology, but also of medical genetics and clinical medicine. Few disciplines have experienced growth comparable to that which we have witnessed for epigenetics in the past decade. The goal of Epigenetics Protocols, Second Edition is to highlight select techniques that have been mainstays in the field as well as to cover methods that are especially relevant to extant discoveries in epigenetics. This volume focuses on the two broad areas of epigenetics: DNA methylation and chromatin modifications, and also covers the complex topic of computational methods for epigenetic analyses which is essential to a complete understanding of the vast body of information that is being derived with the use of these newly-developed tools. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters contain introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and notes on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and accessible, Epigenetics Protocols, Second Edition serves as an ideal guide to advanced students, basic scientists and clinical researchers as well as clinicians and biotechnology investigators who wish to continue exploring this exciting and progressive research field.
