Cancer Susceptibility : Methods and Protocols, Hardback Book

Cancer Susceptibility : Methods and Protocols Hardback

Edited by Michelle Webb

Part of the Methods in Molecular Biology series

Description

Over the past two decades, spectacular advances have been made in our understanding of the molecular genetics of cancer, leading to the pursuit of identifying genes that, when mutated, result in an increased susceptibility to the disease.

In Cancer Susceptibility: Methods and Protocols, experts in the field bring together the most recent technological developments for identifying and screening cancer susceptibility genes. Divided into two clear sections, the book begins with gene identification, which updates and informs scientists working at identifying novel cancer susceptibility genes, while the second part deals with mutation screening technologies that aid scientists and clinicians working to translate this knowledge into the clinic. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology (TM) 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 cutting-edge, Cancer Susceptibility: Methods and Protocols is a timely collection that seeks to provide researchers with the tools to predict and combat this terrible disease.
