Long-Range Control of Gene Expression covers the current progress in understanding the mechanisms for genomic control of gene expression, which has grown considerably in the last few years as insight into genome organization and chromatin regulation has advanced.

Key Features

  • Discusses the evolution of cis-regulatory sequences in drosophila
  • Includes information on genomic imprinting and imprinting defects in humans
  • Includes a chapter on epigenetic gene regulation in cancer


Molecular geneticists, clinical geneticists, neurologists, neuroscientists, molecular biologists and biochemists, cell and developmental biologists
