Allis, Caparros, Jenuwein, Reinberg, and Lachner offer the 2nd edition of this epigenetics reference, updated with the most recent research from 2007-2014, including research made possible by massively parallel RNA sequencing and advances in the understanding of histone modification and chromatin remodeling. A brief history of the field of epigenetics is provided in the first chapter, followed by a chapter containing eleven shorter essays on cutting-edge research. Chapters 3-36 cover basic concepts and mid-level detail on many topics in the field, including histone modifications, DNA methylation, model organisms and paradigms, differences between plants and animals, X chromosomes and dosage compensation, germline cells, and the impact of genetics on the understanding of systemic development and disease.
