Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Handbook of Epigenetics contains an impressive collection of 37 articles, mainly dealing with the biology of epigenetics. Covered topics range from molecular marks and mechanism, over model systems, epidemiology, aging and the brain to diseases.. In summary, the Handbook of Epigenetics provides a unique and useful combination of information and it is a valuable addition to the bookshelf of scientists with experience in the field."--CHEMBIOCHEM

This is a great text to bring one up to date on the exploding subject of epigenetics. I am an older physician and appreciate the update.

A very compreensive and also deep review of the last discoveries and the function of Epigenetics.

Very organized book, from multiple authors expressing diferent research lines and perspectives from Epigenetics. The text is covered with references, average 150 per chapter with articles and review updated until 2009.

Graduated understanding in Biology, Molecular Sciences, or Medicine will be wellcome to read it.

I bought this book for a class only to find out that it was available through the school online class. I basically paid for it twice. The book is informative.

I really liked the book and have to say it was even a bit more than I expected. The illustrations are good and the topics were just what I needed in order to help me understand Epigenetics better. I definetly recommend, especially for those starting to study Epigenetics or wanting to know more about its mechanisms.

This book is not for people who have not had experience with biology texts. I am a non-bio major, and found this book almost impossible to get through.
