附註 Reviews the possibilities of methyl-group-based epigenetic biomarkers of major diseases, tailored epigenetic therapies, and the future uses of high-throughput methylome technologies. this volume includes many pertinent advances in disease-bearing research, including therapies and the possibility of using methyl donors. DNA methylation is also discussed as a plasma and serum test for non-invasive screening, diagnostic and prognostic tests, as compared to biopsy-driven gene expression analysis. The author also presents the importance of high-throughput methylome analysis, as well as the advantages of DNA methylation as a biomarker over other molecular processes. An excellent resource for basic biology and translational researchers interested in developmental biology, genetics health genomics, epigenesis in complex disease, and therapeutic possibilities. Developmental biologists, geneticists, biotechnologists, and epidemiologists also have much to gain from this specialized and focused volume
