Abstract:

Extraordinary potential lies in the study of how genes interact with their environment to produce a phenotype, and it has just begun to be tapped. This structured reference intended for a wide audience of students and researchers introduces epigenetics and epigenetic methods in 16 contributed chapters covering such topics as early life environment, murine models of transgenerational epigenetic inheritance, centromeres and telomeres, histones (dosage and degradation), DNA methylation changes in cancer, and variant histones H2A and cancer development, among other topics.
