Description

Omic Studies of Neurodegenerative Disease: Part B is part of a well-established international series on neuroscience that examines major areas of basic and clinical research, along with emerging and promising subfields. The book informs the reader on the current state of the studies used to evaluate the mechanisms, causes, and treatment of neurodegeneration through a combination of literature reviews and examples of current research.

Key Features

  • Provides the expertise of leading contributors in the field
  • Demonstrates how findings in the fields of genomics, proteomics, and metabolomic studies can combined for further insights
  • Informs the reader on the current state of the studies used to study the mechanisms, causes, and treatment of neurodegeneration through a combination of literature reviews and examples of current research

Readership

The volume will appeal to a wide audience including students and researchers from across the life science community, particularly those interested in neuroscience.
