Epigenetics and Chromatin, Paperback / softback Book

Epigenetics and Chromatin Paperback / softback

Edited by Philippe Jeanteur

Part of the Progress in Molecular and Subcellular Biology series


Epigenetics refers to heritable patterns of gene expression which do not depend on alterations of genomic DNA sequence.

This book provides a state-of-the-art account of a few selected hot spots by scientists at the edge in this extremely active field.

It puts special emphasis on two main streams of research.

One is the role of post-translational modifications of proteins, mostly histones, on chromatin structure and accessibility.

The other one deals with parental genomic imprinting, a process which allows to express a few selected genes from only one of the parental allele while extinguishing the other.
