Yeast systems biology: methods and protocols [electronic resource]


This second edition volume expands on the previous edition with a look at the latest advances in techniques to study yeast and its core set of interactions, modules, architectures, and network dynamics that are common in all eukaryotes. The chapters in this book are organized into Four Parts: Part One provides readers with an update on the development of novel experimental and computational approaches to yeast systems biology; Part Two explores high-throughput methods used to study yeast epigenome, transcriptome, proteome, and metabolome; Part Three talks about computational systems biology, and focuses on data management, dynamic modeling, constraint-based models of metabolic networks, and multi-level ‘omics data; while Part Four looks at experimental platforms that utilize yeast to model systemic human diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics; lists of the necessary materials and reagents; step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols; and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
