Description:Cancer Genomics and Proteomics: Methods and Protocols provides a compendium of techniques and applications that will be of profound use to researchers interested in gene identification and function. The approaches described in this volume are state-of-the-art and may be tailored to ongoing individual or planned research projects. Reviews are written by experts in specific aspects of gene identification and full-length gene cloning, gene profiling (microarrays), chromatin modification of gene regulation, bacterial artificial chromosomes, cancer cytogenetic analyses, and gene methylation. Chapters also discuss topics such as phage display, yeast and mammalian two-hybrid systems, RNA silencing, monoclonal antibody production, kinases and signal transduction, PKR, analyses of mouse embryo fibroblasts, protein microarrays, and protein crystallization. Cancer Genomics and Proteomics: Methods and Protocols will be of interest to molecular biologists, geneticists, cell biologists, and biochemists involved in studying genes associated with and regulating important physiological processes. This volume will serve as a valuable laboratory resource for designing experiments to identify and analyze genes that are relevant to complex biological phenomena.
