New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : Epigenomics

dna strand

From the publisher website for the journal:

“One of the most exciting developments to come out of the completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003 was the emergence of the new field of epigenomics – the study of epigenetic modification at a level outside the single gene. While epigenetics refers to the study of single genes or groups of genes, epigenomics refers to the wider global analyses of epigenetic changes across the entire genome.

The blueprint of our genes may be have been defined by the Human Genome Project but the rules governing them are prescribed by the science of epigenomics. Therefore, the origins of health and susceptibility to disease are, in part, the result of epigenetic regulation of the genetic blueprint.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (2009) to present. Access is provided by the publisher Future Medicine for one year up to 31 December 2019, on top of our subscription to Journal of 3D printing in medicine.

Access Epigenomics via the Journal Search or from the iDiscover record.
