Description

Nuclear Architecture and Dynamics provides a definitive resource for (bio)physicists and molecular and cellular biologists whose research involves an understanding of the organization of the genome and the mechanisms of its proper reading, maintenance, and replication by the cell. This book brings together the biochemical and physical characteristics of genome organization, providing a relevant framework in which to interpret the control of gene expression and cell differentiation. It includes work from a group of international experts, including biologists, physicists, mathematicians, and bioinformaticians who have come together for a comprehensive presentation of the current developments in the nuclear dynamics and architecture field.

The book provides the uninitiated with an entry point to a highly dynamic, but complex issue, and the expert with an opportunity to have a fresh look at the viewpoints advocated by researchers from different disciplines.

Key Features

  • Highlights the link between the (bio)chemistry and the (bio)physics of chromatin
  • Deciphers the complex interplay between numerous biochemical factors at task in the nucleus and the physical state of chromatin
  • Provides a collective view of the field by a large, diverse group of authors with both physics and biology backgrounds

Readership

Geneticists, clinical researchers, life science researchers, (bio)physicists and molecular/cellular biologists, advanced undergraduate and graduate students in genetics, molecular biology, cell biology, and biophysics

About the Editors

Christophe Lavelle Editor

Christophe Lavelle, Volume Editor, is a research scientist at the CNRS (National Center for Scientific Research), principal investigator at the National Museum of Natural History in Paris. His studies mostly concern the biophysical properties of DNA and dynamical processes at task in the nucleus. He teaches biophysics and epigenetics in several universities (Paris VI, Paris VII, Aix-Marseille, Lyon, Lille, Toulouse) and is a member of the American and the French Biophysical Societies.
