By Andrew E. Teschendorff
This booklet introduces the reader to fashionable computational and statistical instruments for translational epigenomics learn. during the last decade, epigenomics has emerged as a key quarter of molecular biology, epidemiology and genome medication. Epigenomics not just bargains us a deeper figuring out of primary mobile biology, but additionally offers us with the root for a better realizing and administration of advanced ailments. From novel biomarkers for hazard prediction, early detection, analysis and diagnosis of universal ailments, to novel healing techniques, epigenomics is determined to play a key function within the customized drugs of the long run. during this ebook we introduce the reader to a couple of crucial computational and statistical tools for studying epigenomic information, with a unique concentrate on DNA methylation. issues comprise normalization, correction for mobile heterogeneity, batch results, clustering, supervised research and integrative equipment for platforms epigenomics. This booklet can be of curiosity to scholars and researchers in bioinformatics, biostatistics, biologists and clinicians alike.
Dr. Andrew E. Teschendorff is Head of the Computational structures Genomics Lab on the CAS-MPG associate Institute for Computational Biology, Shanghai, China, in addition to an Honorary examine Fellow on the UCL melanoma Institute, collage university London, UK.
