Cell biology is a rapidly advancing subject. Understanding principles of nuclear architecture is a key question. Researchers are starting to develop more strict and rigorous methods of image processing and quantitative analysis to provide an end-to-end process supporting the fundamental biology.

This book has chapters contributed by experts in the field that address the whole endeavour of teasing out the principles of nuclear architecture: ranging from fundamental science, through imaging processing and quantitative analysis, to applications, related to disease. This material is focussed on the latest breakthroughs, and moreover will emphasise a strict and rigorous development of the scientific process. A systems view is stressed where relevant. The objective is not to provide an encyclopaedic compendium of nuclear architecture information, but rather to present state of the art tools in specific contexts, which will readily generalise.
