Nuclear Organization and FunctionBiology’s central organelle, the nucleus, was the focus of the 75th annual Cold Spring Harbor Symposium on Quantitative Biology.  We’ve just released a new volume based on the presentations by the investigators who gathered at this meeting, held last June.  The book, entitled Nuclear Organization and Function, reviews the latest advances in research into nuclear structure, the organization of the genome within the nucleus, and spatiotemporal coordination of nuclear processes. The topics examined include nuclear domains, chromatin organization, transcription and RNA processing, DNA replication, nuclear reprogramming, and epigenetics. Cancer, premature aging syndromes, and other diseases that may be associated with altered nuclear organization are also covered.

Nuclear Organization and Function is available in paperback and hardcover.  Libraries that purchase the hardcover edition of the book are entitled to institutional online access to it at http://symposium.cshlp.org.
