'This is an excellent work, highly readable and well documented by more than a hundred scientists from academia and industry. The extensive coverage of current theory, new technologies, and disease mechanisms, all associated with epigenomics, make this book invaluable to students and researchers in a wide range of disciplines. Recommended for all academic libraries.'

'… Appasani gathers our present knowledge about epigenomics in this interesting book. The topics covered will allow the reader to understand the role of epigenetic mechanisms in cell biology and disease. At the same time, this book offers a good opportunity to learn about the epigenomic techniques applied in both basic research and in biotechnology and biomedical companies.'
Marian Martinez-Balbas - CSIC-Barcelona Molecular Biology Institute
'… provides a broad coverage of the key aspects of epigenetics and its future potential to treat epigenetic related diseases. I recommend this book as an excellent up-to-date reference for established investigators in the field of epigenomics and to newcomers who want an update of the recent developments in this field. The book can also serve as a reference text for students as part of an advanced course on molecular biology.'
Richard L. Momparler - University of Montréal
'This book is an excellent update on the current status of epigenomics, a relatively new discipline of life sciences bridging genetics and epigenetics … The book covers the different aspects from basic science to available technology and highlights the significant impact of epigenomics on the understanding of human disease. Epigenetic abnormalities are very critical in the pathogenesis of human cancer; the understanding of epigenetics is of importance for the development of innovative therapeutics including the potential pharmaceutical use of (pluripotent) stem cells. Experts in their field provide up-to-date information making the book very valuable …'
