Proteomic Genomic Analysis is the very first book to focus on this new approach that will eventually aid in developing new diagnostic markers and therapies for controlling and treating heart disease – the number-one killer in the industrialized world. Divided into two parts, the book describes not only the potentials, but also the limitations of these technologies. The editors, both well known within the scientific community, provide new insights into the biochemical and cellular mechanisms of cardiovascular disease, as well as covering the transition into clinical applications. In so doing, they highlight the various strategies and technical aspects so as to assist the growing number of researchers intending to utilize these approaches. The result is an excellent way of educating and informing graduate students, post-doctoral fellows as well as researchers in academia and industry about the latest developments in this area.
