    Book Summary

    The new edition of Gene Control has been updated to include significant advances in the roles of the epigenome and regulatory RNAs in gene regulation. The chapter structure remains the same: the first part consists of pairs of chapters that explain the mechanisms involved and how they regulate gene expression, and the second part deals with specific biological processes (including diseases) and how they are controlled by genes. Coverage of methodology has been strengthened by the inclusion more explanation and diagrams.

    The significant revision and updating will allow Gene Control to continue to be of value to students, scientists and clinicians interested in the topic of gene control.

    Features

      • Coverage on the contribution of small and large regulatory RNAs
      • Coverage of the role of chromatin structure and epigenetic changes to the control of gene expression
      • Coverage of methodology updated to include whole genome approaches and structural studies
      • Coverage of methodology deepened to give more detail on how the methods are carried out and include experimental data
      • Same chapter organization as the 1st edition
