Due to advances in molecular biology techniques, chromatin structure and function has re-emerged as a key research area in the investigation of gene regulation and expression. This indispensable new book provides the busy researcher with an overview of all the latest research in this important area. Topicality and breadth of coverage is assured by the contributions of an international group of over 30 leading scientists in this field.
