Epigenetics, Environment, and Genes
Sun Woo Kang
CRC Press, Apr 16, 2013 - Science - 334 pages
Epigenetics refers to DNA and chromatin modifications that play an important role in the regulation of various genomic functions. This important book reviews human and cellular data that underline paradoxical findings with respect to the contribution of heredity and environment to phenotype. The contributors then reinterpret these experiments that incorporate epigenetic factors. Topics include DNA methylation, histone modifications, chromatin modifications, the role of epigenetic modifications and environment on gene expression, and integrating genomic medicine into clinical practice.

Good selection of papers. Will recommend this to my library.
Most, if not all of the articles in this book are republished from freely available online sources. At least some of the authors were unaware that this work was being republished. There are also reports that chapter titles were changed so that they no longer accurately reflect the content, and the publisher did not clearly indicate that the content was not original.
