Human epigenomics explained in new Springer textbook

This is the definitive textbook on human epigenomics, the study of epigenetic modifications across the entire genome. It is the first of its kind to focus on epigenomics in humans, the molecular basis of epigenomics and its role in health and disease. Written by Professor Carsten Carlberg and Dr Ferdinand Molnár, this book discusses the principles of gene regulation, chromatin stability, genomic imprinting and the reversibility of DNA methylation and histone modifications.


The future of blood-based biomarkers for the early detection of breast cancer.

Breast cancer (BC) is the most frequently diagnosed cancer and the most common cause of cancer-related mortality among women worldwide. Despite the extensive use of mammography as the gold standard fo ....
