Toxicological Research Reference from C.H.I.P.S.

An Introduction to Toxicogenomics

edited by
Michael E. Burczynski


Features:

  • Presents a clear introduction to expression profiling and large scale data analysis applicable to any field of research
  • Explains the complex clustering algorithms required for expression profiling analyses
  • Includes stunning images involved in microarray analysis of large-scale data sets
  • Provides additional information and cites specific examples that illustrate the principles of toxicogenomics
  • Describes toxicogenomic findings in two of the main model systems employed in toxicological research today
  • Equally explores concepts and applications in both mechanistic and predictive toxicogenomics

Gathering together leading authors and scientists at the forefront of the field, An Introduction to Toxicogenomics provides a comprehensive overview of this new discipline. With a focus on toxicology, it introduces the basic principles of microarray/oligonucleotide array-based genomic analysis and explains how it fits into the field of biomedical research. These discussions provide an overview to the actual mechanics of the analyses themselves and offer insights on handling and quality control. Then the book features an important section on the basics of data analysis and clustering methods such as genetic algorithms. Finally, it covers the application of expression profiling in the field of toxicology and addresses the two fundamental types of analysis in detail, with sections dedicated to both mechanistic and predictive studies.

An Introduction to Toxicogenomics consolidates the concepts underlying the field to provide a solid foundation from which to begin your research endeavors.
