Cardiovascular genomics; methods and protocols.

Ed. by Keith DiPetrillo.

Humana Press Inc.


350 pages



Methods in molecular biology; 573


DiPetrillo (Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research) gathers genomic research protocols used in for studying the genes and cellular processes related to cardiovascular disease. Written in the series format, chapters include lists of the equipment, materials, and reagents, step-by-step instructions, and notes on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. The first half of the book provides experimental protocols for evaluating cardiovascular phenotypes in rodent models. The second half describes methods for integrating statistical and bioinformatic phenotype data with genotype and gene expression data. Most of these chapters discuss statistical and computational methods for linkage mapping and association studies in experimental species and humans. There is also material on bioinformatics methods for analyzing gene expression data from microarray studies.
