As two of the leading causes of death worldwide, heart disease and stroke represent a clear target for genomic research aimed at deciphering the genes and cellular pathways that underlie cardiovascular disease and creating improved therapies. In Cardiovascular Genomics: Methods and Protocols, experts in the field provide methods for cardiovascular phenotyping of rodent models in the first section of the volume and for statistical and bioinformatic integration of phenotype data with genome-wide genotype and expression data in the second section. Understanding these diverse methods will allow an individual laboratory to utilize these genomic methods independently or to better prepare for collaboration with scientists having expertise in other disciplines in order to uncover genes affecting cardiovascular disease. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular BiologyTM series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary equipment, materials, and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and notes on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Cutting-edge and easy-to-use, Cardiovascular Genomics: Methods and Protocols will enable researchers to identify causal genes and novel molecular targets that can lead to vital new treatments for cardiovascular disease.
