Visions of the Cell Nucleus brings together scientists working on different aspects of structure and function of the mammalian cell nucleus. The goal of this book is to give a state-of-the-art overview on chromatin organization, function and dynamics of subnuclear structures, gene expression, DNA distribution, and disease. Emhpasis is put on new ideas of dynamic structure/function relationships revealed by the recent advent of new microscopy techniques as well as on subnuclear pathology and disease associations. The book provides all the information researchers, scientists and professionals need for this rapidly growing field.
