CpG islands constitute key genomic elements playing a fundamental role in essential biological processes such as development and cell differentiation. CpG islands are short stretches of DNA enriched in CpG dinucleotides, firstly identified by Adrian Bird in the 80’s. The human genome contains about 28,000 of these elements that are tightly associated to the regulation of 40% of the genes. Epigenetic alterations of specific CpG islands constitute molecular landmarks of multiple diseases including cancer, cardiovascular and neurological diseases, becoming principal targets as biomarkers and advanced therapeutic strategies.
The authoritative series Methods in Molecular Biology published by Springer Nature has released a new volume devoted to cover different aspects related with the study of these genomic elements. The book covers bioinformatic and molecular biology methods useful to identify and to explore the functions of CpG islands, as well as reviews on key applications of its study. Tanya Vavouri and Miguel A. Peinado, from the IJC and the IGTP, are the editors and have counted with the contribution of internationally renowned scientists in the fields of genomics and epigenomics.
