DNA repair processes are of fundamental importance to all aspects of cell biology. It is through these processes and their critical interfaces to DNA replication, transcription, cell cycle, telomere maintenance, and other essential cellular processes that genomic stability is maintained. The aims of this edition are three-fold. The first section of the book aims to illustrate novel mechanistic insights into the various forms of DNA repair. The second section of the book describes works that elucidate the interfaces between DNA repair and the various essential processes. The final section of the book outlines strategies for clinical translation of the vast reservoir of knowledge on this topic into therapeutic, prognostic, and predictive platforms.
