Understanding an individual's genetic makeup is the key to creating personalized drugs with greater efficacy and safety, and pharmacogenomics aims to study the complex genetic basis of inter-patient variability in response to drug therapy. Based upon the success of its first edition, the second edition of Pharmacogenomics: Methods And Protocols aims to continue providing readers with high-quality content on the most innovative and commonly adopted technologies in the field of pharmacogenomics as presented by experts in the field. Broken into several sections, this detailed volume examines techniques for interrogating variation in human genes and genomes, functional assessment of genetic variation, both in vitro and in vivo, as well as tools for translation and implementation of pharmacogenetic markers. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, chapters include introductions to the respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and key tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
Comprehensive and thoroughly updated, Pharmacogenomics: Methods And Protocols, Second Edition serves as an essential reference and an invaluable source on the latest information in this field.
Fully updated from the popular first edition Features easy-to-follow protocols that are ready for the laboratory Contains expert tips and key implementation advice to ensure successful results
