Site Specific and Global Epigenomic Editing: Principles and Applications, Volume 33 highlights the expanding role that epigenetics plays in pathogenesis, the full range of sites for possible epigenetic modification, and the potential to target these sites to modulate disease progression. The book answers key questions, including which of the hundreds of epigenomic marks and features are relevant, and which are likely to serve a role in regulating gene expression, cell behavior and phenotypic outcomes. This volume is the first to provide a thorough, conceptual introduction to epigenetic regulation and a thorough accounting of sites for possible epigenetic edits and disease modulation.

Included protocols and applied case studies examine early disease targets and likely pathways of therapeutic significance while also outlining common challenges in the field. The book addresses its topic in a comprehensive, but accessible manner, highlighting practical tools and burning questions remaining in the field to enable fresh research.

Feng C Zhou Professor of Anatomy, Cell Biology, Neuroscience, and Psychology, Emeritus; Adjunct Professor of Behavioral Psychology, Northwestern University, Indianapolis, IN, USA. Dr. Feng C. Zhou is Professor Emertus of Anatomy and Cell Biology at Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, Indiana. In his research, Dr. Zhou studies genetic contributions to gene expression that underpin the neurochemical and neuroanatomical differences contributing to alcohol addiction. His previous research has demonstrated that alcohol alters expression cohorts of neural specification genes, and cell cycling genes in the canonical developmental pathways. In recent years, Dr. Zhou has expanded his research to include the genomics and epigenetics of alcoholism, epigenetic editing by optogenetics, cell-wide DNA de-methylation and re-methylation of purkinje neurons in the developing cerebellum, and environmental alterations of epigenetics prior to the birth, among other topics. Dr. Zhou has published widely in scientific, peer reviewed journals including Scientific Reports, PLoS ONE, Oncotarget, Frontiers in Genetics, Brain Research, Cell Transplantation, and Alcohol.
