| Recent Advances in Proteomics Research
Editor Sameh Magdeldin
164 pages, November, 2015
"Proteomics refers to the entire complement of proteins, including modification. This promising discipline has enabled us to study proteins from a massive and comprehensive point of view. The book Recent Advances in Proteomics Research describes in five sections some of the applications of proteomics. This fine research has been written by leading experts worldwide. This book is aimed mainly at those interested in proteins and in the field of proteins, particularly biochemists, biologists, pharmacists, advanced graduate students and postgraduate researchers."
| Integrative Proteomics
Editor Hon-Chiu Eastwood Leung, Subject editors: Tsz-Kwong Man and Ricardo J. Flores
452 pages, February, 2012
"Proteomics was thought to be a natural extension after the field of genomics has deposited significant amount of data. However, simply taking a straight verbatim approach to catalog all proteins in all tissues of different organisms is not viable. Researchers may need to focus on the perspectives of proteomics that are essential to the functional outcome of the cells. In Integrative Proteomics, expert researchers contribute both historical perspectives, new developments in sample preparation, gel-based and non-gel-based protein separation and identification using mass spectrometry."
| Proteomic Applications in Biology
Editor Joshua L. Heazlewood and Christopher J. Petzold, Subject editors: Tsz-Kwong Man and Ricardo J. Flores
276 pages, January, 2012
"The past decade has seen the field of proteomics expand from a highly technical endeavor to a widely utilized technique. The objective of this book is to highlight the ways in which proteomics is currently being employed to address issues in the biological sciences."

|The Science and Applications of Microbial Genomics: Workshop Summary
| Functional Genomics
Editor Germana Meroni and Francesca Petrera
210 pages, September, 2012
"The book provides an overview on basic issues and some of the recent developments in medicinal science and technology. Covering all the aspects involved in such a broad theme as functional genomics and in all its applications would be impossible within the same book. The different chapters represent a brief introduction to the topic, connecting the most promising developments in functional genomics technologies, focusing on specific applications in biomedicine, agro-food technologies and zootechniques."
|The Value of Genetic and Genomic Technologies: Workshop Summary
Editor Ute Roessner
374 pages, February, 2012
"Metabolomics is a rapidly emerging field in life sciences, which aims to identify and quantify metabolites in a biological system. Analytical chemistry is combined with sophisticated informatics and statistics tools to determine and understand metabolic changes upon genetic or environmental perturbations. Together with other 'omics analyses, such as genomics and proteomics, metabolomics plays an important role in functional genomics and systems biology studies in any biological science."

|Next Generation Sequencing (NGS)||Next Generation Sequencing - Advances, Applications and Challenges
Editor Jerzy K Kulski
462 pages, January, 2016
"Next generation sequencing (NGS) has surpassed the traditional Sanger sequencing method to become the main choice for large-scale, genome-wide sequencing studies with ultra-high-throughput production and a huge reduction in costs. The NGS technologies have had enormous impact on the studies of structural and functional genomics in all the life sciences. In this book, Next Generation Sequencing Advances, Applications and Challenges, the sixteen chapters written by experts cover various aspects of NGS including genomics, transcriptomics and methylomics, the sequencing platforms, and the bioinformatics challenges in processing and analysing huge amounts of sequencing data."
|Epigenomics|| Epigenetics and Epigenomics
Editor Christopher J. Payne
218 pages, April, 2014
"The book aims to provide an overview of current knowledge regarding epigenetics and epigenomics. Included are reviews on the role of epigenetics in the development and pathogenesis of the vascular endothelium and nervous system, as well as our current understanding of the potential etiologies of Autism Spectrum Disorders. Additional chapters are devoted to DNA methylation, genomic imprinting and human reproduction."
